38th Annual Executive Function Conference | Executive Function, Motivation, and Engagement:
Fostering Social-Emotional Learning and Positive Behavior in Students

November 9 & 10, 2023

Dr. Braaten is thrilled to be a featured speaker at the 38th Annual Executive Function and Learning Differences Conference, hosted by the Research Institute for Learning and Development. This virtual conference will address the close connections between Executive Function and Social-Emotional Learning and the importance of examining these processes for students from K-12 to college. Presentations will highlight the themes of neurodiversity, flexible thinking, motivation, self-understanding, self-regulation, and behavior, in the context of research, clinical practice, and teaching.

  • How do we promote executive function and social-emotional learning to address students’ behavioral and academic struggles in the classroom?

  • How do we build self-understanding, motivation, and flexible thinking so that we promote engagement and reduce stress in school?

  • How do we use EF strategies to differentiate instruction and to address the needs of neurodiverse students with a broad range of abilities?

  • How do we build equity into our classrooms and schools?

This conference will include a combination of plenary sessions and pre-recorded concurrent sessions to provide opportunities for in-depth learning. The program will emphasize the application of theory and research to educational practice.

This conference is designed for professionals in education, psychology, child development, speech and language pathology, school psychology, home-school education, and other related fields. This includes general and special-education teachers and principals across elementary and secondary grades, superintendents, curriculum directors, college-level administrators, and specialists in the field of social-emotional learning.
