What is Executive Functioning?
Executive Functioning is a set of mental skills that help you get things done. These skills help enable children to plan, organize, remember things, prioritize, pay attention, and get started on tasks. These skills also help people use information and experiences from the past to solve current problems.
When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves, families and communities.
