Explaining Executive Function: Next Steps for Supporting FASD & Other Neurobehavioral Conditions

Nate Sheets of Oregon Behavior Consultation is a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Behavior Consultant who works and speaks all over the state. His goal is to provide practical strategies for parents and caregivers through Cognitive Support™. Join us for a discussion in March.

Executive Functioning skills are a critical set of cognitive skills that allow us to understand the world around us and make decisions that help us be successful. They include attention, transitioning from one thing to another, ignoring distractions, and regulating our emotions. For people with FASD and other neurobehavioral conditions frequently cannot access these skills, and this can lead to challenging behaviors.

Join us as Nate Sheets discusses:

  • Various Executive Functioning skills, and the behaviors they create when not available or developed.
  • How caregivers can think ahead to anticipate behaviors and provide a Cognitive Support.
  • Common mistakes we make when trying to support a person with Executive Functioning challenges.
