Building and Supporting Executive Function Skills
About This Workshop
Executive functions are a set of mental skills that people use to learn, work, and manage their daily lives. These skills include working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. Children are still in the process of developing these skills, and they often run into challenges along the way. Difficulties with executive functioning can make it hard to focus, follow directions, and handle emotions. This talk will discuss the importance of different aspects of executive function skills and provide practical strategies that caregivers can use to help kids strengthen them.
