Introduction to Executive Functioning - Webinar Wednesday 

Facilitated by Emily McKenna

Each day in their OSHC work educators draw upon a specific set of skills that help them make decisions, stay on track, plan and prioritise tasks. These are called executive functioning skills and include analysing, problem solving, memory, and impulse control. Whilst it’s easy to take these skills for granted, it’s important to remember that they need to be learnt and refined; which is particularly challenging for those with executive dysfunction. Children with executive functioning difficulties will need accommodations and support for the skills they are lacking. Even if children have developed particular executive function skills, they have to be well regulated in order to access and demonstrate them.

This session will look at:

  • The range executive functioning skills
  • How regulation impacts executive functioning
  • Accommodations and strategies for OSHC

An understanding of executive functioning and it’s relevance in OSHC means that we can respond with empathy and kindness and reminds us of the important philosophy that “Children do well when they Can”.

This session is suited to OSHC professionals at all career stages.

In response to the changing needs of the OSHC sector we have made the following modifications to our Webinar Wednesdays:

  • 30 minute sessions - shorter, sharper content to overcome the time constraints many services are experiencing that limits their engagement with professional development
  • New supplementary resources for every session including: 
    • Training  Plan for Educational Leaders with session objectives, regulatory context, pre reading or viewing options, learning activities and additional resources links. This is designed to scaffold Educational Leaders with supporting their educator team in their on the job training, ongoing learning and professional development. It draws connections between session content and pedagogy and practice, and provokes critical reflection on the important role of educational leadership.
    • Educator Worksheet with reflections and activities for ‘Putting into Practice’ the session content
    • This means that even through the sessions are shorter – you’re not missing out on the important bits
    • Cost savings - enjoy educator team (per service) participation for the same fee
  • New delivery time - 10:00am to 10:30am EST
