What is Executive Function?
Executive function is a set of mental skills that, simply put, helps you get things done.
Elementary school students use them every day when learning to take turns, focusing on a math problem amid distractions, following multi-step directions, or remembering everything they will need to bring home from school.
In teens, solid executive functioning enables them to remember to hit "submit" to hand in their homework on time, keep all of their e-mails and important information organized, stay focused on a Zoom even when they find the material boring or difficult, effectively plan for longer projects, and avoid becoming overwhelmed with schoolwork, among other things.
Help is Here
Christine Leppones of EF Ninja, is an executive function coach here in Marin county. She has been working with neurodiverse students of all abilities for the past 8 years. Join us as Christine outlines practical strategies parents can use to hone the executive function skills needed to be successful both in school and out.
