PODCAST: Executive Functioning

In this episode of the Pooky Ponders Podcast, I delve into the fascinating realm of executive functioning skills and their impact on neurodivergent children’s learning journey. Join me as I explore what these skills entail, why they pose challenges for individuals with conditions like autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ADHD, and how we can better support them at school and at home. 

I challenge neuronormative assumptions in education, urging a shift towards a more inclusive and diverse approach. From practical strategies for the classroom to fostering executive skills in the home environment, this episode offers valuable insights and actionable tips for educators, parents, and caregivers.
