Executive Functions: An introduction

Online Course Connections In Mind

About the CPD course

Executive functions are a family of three core brain processes: inhibitory control; working memory and cognitive flexibility. These three core executive functions work together in different ways resulting in a set of other high-order skills called executive function skills. There are 11 executive functions skills including time-management; organisation; planning; emotional control and response inhibition. This course will take you through 3 micro-modules (less than 12 mins each) designed to help you understand: Basic neuroscience behind executive functioning; How executive function challenges present in young people; How parents and teachers can work alongside their child/student to support the development of these skills.
