Executive Function Skills

What is Executive Function?

Executive Function is about “GETTING STUFF DONE.” It`s knowing how to EXECUTE difficult tasks. Some of my students say: “It`s simple but hard.” Things like being organized or using a planner seem simple but it`s overwhelming and complex.

Adolescents struggle with executive function as the prefrontal cortex of the brain is “under construction” and still developing. These muscles in the brain need to be exercised. The more EF skills are practiced, the better students develop these areas as the brain makes new connections and builds strong neuron pathways. With practice and time, students build good routines, working habits and systems as they grow these areas in their brain.
