MTSS, IEP or 504 Supports for Executive Functions (Attention-specific)

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.
— C.S. Lewis

Some of these arrangements may require the student to have a formal individualized education plan (IEP) or 504 Plan, while others might be offered at the teacher's discretion:

How To Apply It!

  1. Extra time on tests or long assignments.
  2. Tests only in the morning when the student is most alert.
  3. Seating away from distractions. Typically this will be in the front of classroom, away from windows, doors, pencil sharpener, etc.
  4. Alternate seating options at times, such as a standing desk or on the floor.
  5. Visual or written schedules given to the student.
  6. Scheduled check-ins for long-term assignments.
  7. Visual or written reminders on desk, locker, backpack, etc.
  8. Instructions written and presented in discrete, manageable steps.
  9. Regularly scheduled breaks to regroup/regain focus or prepare for a transition.
