Executive Functioning

Many students experience difficulties with planning, organization, and execution of projects. During Covid-19, many students who had been doing well completing assignments and studying for tests began to have difficulty. Perhaps it was the result of too much virtual learning, too much time stuck in the house, or not enough social and physical activities.

What exactly is executive functioning?

Executive functioning is a form of cognitive control that involves planning, prioritizing, impulse control, and other high-level forms of cognition. 

Why do high school students require good executive functioning skills?

High school students do not get the kind of support and monitoring that is often provided by elementary school teachers. As a result, they need to maintain their own schedules, monitor their own progress, deal with setbacks, and complete their work in a timely fashion.

As part of our assessment process, we can evaluate the presence of these difficulties and make recommendations as needed.
