In comparison with neuropsychological models of executive function (EF) which focus on multiple components of executive control and highlight the developmental nature of these skills, the design of the UDL framework potentially overemphasizes more advanced EF skills such as self-monitoring and planning, and underemphasizes the role of development and educational context. This interactive session will compare two neuropsychologically informed models (Denckla & Mahone, 2018; Gioia et al., 2002), introduce the concept of hot/cold EF (Zelazo et al.), and explicitly link these to the UDL framework. Based on pre-conference polling, active misconceptions and/or questions from educators related to EF will be addressed. Small group sessions will then actively explore the impact of these critical skills on instructional practice through case-based discussions.
