The course lead Dr Rebecca Ashton is an experienced educational psychologist working in neuropsychology. She has a wealth of experience working with executive functioning issues in school casework and is excited to be sharing her knowledge and understanding in this area.
The course is in an eLearning format which can be taken at your own pace (goes live on the 17th January but does not need to be competed on this date), and used as a reference guide to come back to over time. It also includes a host of useful resources which can be utilised in your practice, reflective activities to facilitate your learning, and a space for the EP community to ask questions and share thoughts between us.
What is included?
- Training: The course is in eLearning format, broken down into six core chapters to increase knowledge and skills across key areas relating to executive functions and our role as an Educational Psychologist. Each core module encompasses a series of subchapters, containing short animated videos, which you can view at your own pace.
- Content Packed: Defining what we mean by executive functions at different levels of specificity, and understanding how those functions develop in typical children, leads us on to how we can assess those skills in individual children. You won’t need to rush out and buy lots of expensive equipment – Dr Rebecca Ashton will explain how you can gather data about executive functioning in a range of ways and bring it together in a coherent formulation. The course will go on to get you thinking about how you talk and listen with others, in order to come to a shared understanding about executive functions. And, of course, we will talk about interventions that might feed into your action planning.
- Assessments: There are a range of observational, informal and standardised assessment approaches we look at in the course, including a number of ideas and resources that can be utilised directly from your psychological toolkit.
- Strategies: A detailed look at a range of evidence-based and practice-based strategies and interventions, alongside practical ideas on how we can talk about Executive Functions with consultations to gain a shared understanding and jointly formulate helpful accommodations and interventions.
