Executive Functioning

Executive Functioning

Executive Function is a term used to describe the many tasks one's brain performs that are necessary to think, act, and solve problems. Executive functioning includes tasks that help us learn new information, remember and retrieve information we've learned in the past, and use this information to solve problems of everyday life. A child's executive functioning skills make it possible for him or her to function in a manner consistent for the child’s age.

Planning & Organizing

Planning skills involve managing current or future tasks by setting goals and establishing the steps needed to complete the task. This requires that a student prioritize which tasks should be done immediately or which can wait. It also requires that a student learn to sequence or determine which order to complete tasks.

Organization of materials involves keeping belongings and other personal objects neat and orderly. An individual needs to maintain such items and materials so they are easy to access and use as needed.
