This 37th Annual Executive Function Conference will address the close connections between executive function and social-emotional learning and the importance of examining these processes for students from K-12 to college. Presentations will highlight the themes of Executive Function, Emotion, Anxiety, and Stress in the context of research, clinical practice, and teaching. We will focus on the following issues:

  • How do executive function and social-emotional processes interact to affect classroom learning?
  • How can we create schools and classrooms that promote executive function and social-emotional learning in all students?
  • How do we promote flexible thinking and resilience so that we reduce students’ stress in school?
  • How can executive function and social-emotional strategies prepare students for academic and lifelong success?

This conference will include a combination of plenary sessions and pre-recorded concurrent sessions to provide opportunities for in-depth learning. The program will emphasize the application of theory and research to educational practice.

Who should attend?
This conference is designed for professionals in education, psychology, child development, speech and language pathology, school psychology, home-school education, and other related fields. This includes general and special-education teachers and principals across elementary and secondary grades, superintendents, curriculum directors, college-level administrators, and specialists in the field of social-emotional learning.
