39th Annual Executive Function and Learning Differences Conference

November 14 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm


Executive Function and Motivation: Promoting Student Agency, Engagement, and Connectedness

This conference will address the close connections between Executive Function and Motivation and the importance of examining these processes for students from K-12 to college. Presentations will highlight the themes of chronic absenteeism, school discipline, behavior, neurodiversity, flexible thinking, motivation, metacognition, and self-regulation in the context of research, clinical practice, and teaching.

We will focus on the following issues:

  • How can we create supportive learning environments that foster the development of executive function strategies and reduce chronic absenteeism?
  • How do we promote executive function and motivation to address students’ behavioral and academic struggles in the classroom?
  • How do we build student agency, motivation, and connectedness so that we promote engagement and reduced stress in school?
  • How do we use executive function strategies to differentiate instruction and to address the needs of neurodiverse students with a broad range of abilities?
