Executive Functioning

Executive functions are the set of skills that serve as the command center of the brain. They are mental processes that help each of us navigate through life, helping us get things done.

 

People use their executive function skills to perform activities such as planning, organizing, prioritizing, paying attention to and remembering details, manage time, sustain attention and focus, get things done, self regulate, and be aware of how they function and interact in the world.

A person challenged by their executive functions, can experience greater difficulty and stress in school, the workplace, social settings and relationships, and at home.
