Executive functioning refers to our ability to self-regulate, plan, organize, multitask, shift attention, prioritize tasks, and manage our "to-do list" mentally. Executive functioning occurs primarily in the frontal lobe of the brain. This is not an ability that children are born with, they are born with the ability to develop executive functioning strategies as the frontal lobe develops.
Often children with learning disorders struggle with executive functioning. They have difficulty managing homework assignments because they aren't able to plan and sequence the steps, they have an inability to manage time, they may have a hard time concentrating and focusing. There are very specific and systematic strategies that we use to help with homework for children with executive functioning difficulties.
Because attention difficulties often co-occur with reading problems - it is often helpful to incorporate strategies to support attention and organization as well.
Our executive functioning support is individualized based on student need. We offer three different treatment models:
We focus on strategies to support working memory, time management, planning and organizing, flexible problem-solving, and self-monitoring.
Therapy sessions are geared to support direct student skill learning, parent support strategies, and teacher/school-based recommendations.
