Event description
Helping children/adolescents with executive function problems to organise—Online Occupational Therapy Talks with The Sunflower Clinic

About this event

Human beings have a built-in capacity to meet challenges and accomplish goals through the use of high-level cognitive functions called executive skills. These skills begin to develop in early infancy and continue to develop well into adolescence and early adulthood. These skills are necessary to select and achieve goals or to develop problem solutions. This talk will look at these skills and how to develop strategies to help children/adolescents who struggle with them.

  • Planning: The ability to create a map to reach a goal or complete a task. This also includes the ability to make decisions about what is important and what is not
  • Organisation: The ability to design and maintain systems for keeping track of information or materials
  • Time management: The capacity to understand the importance of time and have the ability to estimate the amount of time available, how to allocate it to different projects, and how to remain within time limits
  • Working memory: The ability to hold information in mind while performing complex tasks
  • Metacognition: The ability to take a step back and review one’s progress, using self-monitoring and self-evaluative skills, e.g. “How am I doing?”, “How did I do?”

You will be sent Zoom login details before the event.
