Executive Functioning Training
Executive Functioning (EF) has become a popular term mentioned among educators. EF refers to the process in which we initiate a task, organize and plan how to accomplish the task, and lastly persevere and stay focused despite distractions until we complete the task.
Everyone expects children to manage their time, organize their materials and study effectively. However, many schools do not explicitly teach these skills. Therefore some of the common challenges that students and their parents experience at home include: Staying up all night to complete homework, Battling with child to complete homework or study, Students can’t find their materials, Poor test grades despite “studying” and Morning routines are horrific. Individual EF sessions as perfect way for students to be explicitly taught important strategies.
