Join us for a FREE discussion exploring 'understanding executive functioning’ in primary settings.

Featuring: Dr Jawad Shah a Deputy Principal Educational Psychologist who has worked in a variety of local authority services in the Northwest. He also works as a National Officer for the Association of Educational Psychologists, a union and professional body. Jawad does some associate lecturing at the University of Manchester and University of Sheffield, supporting the training of educational psychologists. Jawad has particular interests in the role of educationalists and psychologists in advocating for social justice principles and values. He also has interests in the social and emotional development of children and young people and impact of systems around them.

The discussion will be hosted by Whole School SEND’s regional lead, Becky Jones, and everyone will be encouraged to join in, ask questions and share experiences. As such, content will be responsive but may cover some or all of the following themes:

• Know what executive function is and why executive function skills are important. 
• Identify when executive function skills are lacking and the difficulties this may cause for learners. 
• Strategies and approaches that support the improvement of executive function skills. 

The discussion builds on our 20 minute online SEND CPD units. While everyone is welcome to take part in the session, delegates who have completed the corresponding unit content in preparation are likely to find the sessions particularly helpful.

Due to the interactive nature of these sessions, recordings will not be made available after the event.
