5 Ways to Develop Executive Functioning for Early Learners

Research shows the important role that executive function and other cognitive skills play in forming the essential groundwork for learning. These skills develop as early as age 3. How can educators help to support these skills with young learners? Join Dr. Rebecca Rolland as she reviews the latest research on age-appropriate ways to build executive function in the classroom, ranging from practical tips that educators can incorporate into existing classroom practice to more extensive curricula and after-school interventions. She will also share the latest research on a new neuroscience-based intervention — Kiko's Thinking Time — designed to help early learners build cognitive skills for school readiness.
