Lecture Series | Executive Functioning and Dysregulation: Understanding and Supporting Neurodiverse Students
Many neurodiverse students who struggle with executive functioning challenges also struggle with dysregulation, whether it be difficulty transitioning from video games to homework, listening to the teacher during lecture rather than talking with a friend, or having trouble regulating strong emotions when disappointed or upset. Effectively supporting a student’s ability to self-regulate requires understanding the underlying reasons why it is difficult. During this lecture, we will explore the most common neuropsychological reasons for dysregulation, including underlying anxiety, language weaknesses, inattention, inflexibility, disorganization, and slow processing speed. We will also discuss effective strategies to foster self-regulation, independence, and growth.
