What Are Executive Function Skills?
The frontal lobe of the brain acts as a kind of air traffic control tower by helping us focus on certain things while filtering out distractions. It's also responsible for controlling our impulses and emotions, initiating tasks, remembering information, planning and prioritizing, being organized, and sticking to our goals. These skills are collectively referred to as executive function skills, and they are essential for success in school and beyond.
Many students who struggle in school suffer from weak executive function skills. Executive function coaching can dramatically improve academic performance and boost confidence. Our unique approach combines assessment, student coaching, and parent training. We also offer workshops and curriculum packages for schools.
