As therapists, we often talk about motor planning and executive function as if they are two completely separate deficits rather than discussing the motor foundations and building blocks of executive function skills. As we consider the whole child and ability to participate in the school environment, our role extends beyond writing or navigating the school to participation in the hidden curriculum – daily routines, social activities, independent task completion, and materials management integral to a student’s ability to develop learning habits and adapt to the ever increasing demands of the learning environment as children grow. Building praxis skills allows a student to act and interact with the environment more effectively, achieve greater independence, and reduce dependence on external supports for task completion. In this course, you will learn how praxis skills are an integral part of that process. By the end of this course, you will have a framework for assessing, treating, and managing praxis deficits within the school environment. In a digital world with increasing neurodiversity, being able to identify and address praxis deficits allows you to bring insights to your team that lead to better educational support plans and focused treatment strategies.
