My goal with this project is to secure therapy materials and resources to help my students develop executive functioning skills--a set of crucial life skills that allow us to complete tasks and solve problems. Many of my student's struggle with attention, working memory, impulse control, planning/organizing tasks, and cognitive flexibility--all of which are sub-skills of executive functioning and all of which affect their ability to effectively use their thinking to learn, make connections, and carry out tasks. My students will use books and structured games like Taboo Junior and Snake Oil to strengthen their executive functioning skills, and in turn, develop and reflect on the language that is used in their thought processes to achieve metacognition. The books I have selected will be used to teach my students about planning/organizing, analyzing cause/effect as it relates to their chosen actions, and how to control their impulses. The games I have selected will facilitate attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility. I have also selected a resource that will assist with increasing my knowledge of strategies to assist my student's with building these skills. A big thank you to anyone who is able and willing to support the growth of my students!
