    • The simulation begins with a brief overview of executive function, including the neurological basis and the interventions which have been shown, through solid research, to have a positive impact.
    • Participants then take part in six simulated activities which mimic the experiences and processing of those with executive function disorders.
    • After the simulations, participants discuss their experience and how recommended interventions would help strengthen these skills in learners.
