In school, students are called on to learn by reading every day. Many are able to decode, but when it comes to accessing meaning and remembering what they read, they struggle.

Comprehension of text involves a swirl of cognitive and linguistic abilities, among which are executive functions, a set of brain-based processes that support learning.

As executive functions don’t fully develop until adulthood, educators need proven strategies to help students manage all that’s involved in reading comprehension.

This live webinar will explore the ways in which executive functions both support and constrain reading comprehension.
