Executive Function Skills—What are they?
Teaching children to think—clearly and efficiently—is a universal goal of parents and teachers alike. Thinking skills such as planning, goal setting, organizing, prioritizing, self-monitoring, accessing working memory, impulse control and sustaining focused attention are critical to academic success at every age. Most important, the development of these skills allows children to mature into independent, healthy and functional adults. Executive Function skills are the “how” of learning.

• What are some important Executive Function Skills?

• Why do Executive Function Skills matter?
• Strategies to help teach EF Skills IN AND OUT of the classroom.
