S05 - When LAZY Doesn’t Make Sense: The Impact of Executive Dysfunction on Our Gifted and Twice-Exceptional Children


Oct 31, 2015 12:00am ‐ Oct 31, 2015 12:00am

Description

Difficulty starting a task, inconsistent motivation, and great ideas without follow-through, are often behaviors of the gifted profile and may also indicate executive dysfunction. When students struggle because of the increasing demands on their executive skills, they may be labeled “lazy” by those who don’t understand the emotional toll of the child’s frustrations. This presentation describes the development and identification of executive functions and how asynchronous development, poor production, and social-emotional stressors, manifest in our gifted students with skill deficits.
