Executive functions let people plan, organize and complete tasks. Here’s a closer look at this important set of skills—and how executive functioning issues can affect your child’s everyday life.
Like all skills, executive functioning can be strengthened. There are strategies you can use at home to improve organization, working memory and flexible thinking. Between your help and outside support, your child can learn ways to manage and work around issues with these skills.
As a writer specializing in parenting and education, Amanda Morin draws on her experience as a teacher, early intervention specialist and mom to children with learning issues.
