Executive Function is the brain’s “air traffic control system” that enables us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and manage multiple tasks successfully.

When children have opportunities to develop executive function they experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development and also enable positive behaviour and allow us to make healthy choices.

Children aren’t born with Executive Function skills, but instead need to develop them. And providing the opportunities and support they need for this is one of our most important roles as educators.

In this masterclass you will:

  • Understand what Executive Function is and how it links with Self-Regulation
  • Learn about the brain functions of working memory, mental flexibility and impulse control.
  • Discover exercises and activities you can use with the children in your setting to help them develop these vital skills.

The masterclass includes a 60 minute video with examples and reflection points giving you 90 minutes of professional development. You’ll get a certificate on completion.

You get lifetime access to the masterclass and you can watch as many times as you want.
