In light of requests by some of the parents, teachers, and clinicians in our worldwide Executive Function community we are developing a few tools for you all to use to support learning, cognition and physical health among your students while you are home and/or learning online. This resource includes our executive function motivation badges.

In our clinical practice, at Wellington-Alexander Dyselxia Treatment Center, we often share hand-drawn images, badges or stickers during and after online and in-person education sessions to celebrate our students’ recognition of their skill-building. We thought the badges might encourage your students as well. The badges are FREE to share.

Let’s Build Brain Literacy while engaging the brain in learning through prosocial interaction and play. 

    1. Brain Literacy is learning about brain biology and brain function to help students build metacognition and awareness of their executive function skills (Brain Futures, 2019). 

    2. Research shows that metacognition – the ability to think about how you think – can improve learning (Bialik, 2015). 

    3. Students with higher levels of Brain Literacy are likely more able to identify, apply, and revise cognitive skills in service of their learning and social relationships.  

    4. When we coach students about their executive function skills we tell them “Executive Functions are Cognitive Skills and Cognitive Skills Can Be Learned.” 

    5. Improving students’ brain literacy helps them to understand the relevance of cognitive interventions leading to more agency, better mastery and motivation in improving their social, cognitive and motor skills.
