Executive Functioning

Executive functioning is the ability to "develop concepts, problem-solve, show insight and make judgments about knowledge.” Our executive functioning skills help determine almost everything we do (O'Brien & Kuhaneck, 2020). Planning and following through with a task is an essential aspect of daily independence. If someone is hindered in one or multiple areas of their executive functioning, it can make their daily activities more difficult. Thankfully, there are many ways to improve one's executive functioning!

Tips to improve Executive Functioning:

  • Make or buy a planner to plan out your days.

  • Make a list to break down difficult tasks into simple, easy to follow, step by step directions.

  • Change up your space! Try to find a quiet and well organized space to finish work in.

  • Place pictures/visual reminders in each room to help your child remember where and how to complete certain tasks.

  • Reward! Be sure to reward your child if they complete a difficult task.
