SENGinar: Teaching Executive Function Skills: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Implementation with 2e Learners

This presentation focuses on the results of a three-year action research project based on supporting executive function skill development in a congregated gifted setting. This research is particularly important given the asynchronous nature of development in gifted and twice exceptional learners.

About The Presenters

Ley-Anne Folks is a Canadian educator specializing in twice-exceptional learners. In her interdisciplinary M. Ed (Gifted with ADHD), she investigated the role of executive functions (EF) in learning and developed classroom support techniques for gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) students with EF delays and deficits.

Heather is a Canadian middle school teacher. Her practice focuses on the education of the gifted, with a content specialization in math and science. She is also inspired by the practices of Reggio Emilia and therefore interprets curriculum and builds her instruction through a student-centered, negotiated and generative approach.
