School counselors are often challenged with developing accommodation plans for students with behavioral and executive functioning disabilities that interfere with learning. Parents and educators may be short-sighted and focus on accommodations that assist in reaching the next grade level or graduation but don’t develop the skills necessary for lifelong success.

Participants will understand the need to develop skills to compensate for executive functioning deficits.
Participants will identify deficits created by common educational accommodations.
Participants will create educational accommodations that result in skill development.
