Executive Functioning Training

Executive Functioning Training focused on the body’s executive function, controlled by the frontal lobe. The executive function is a set of skills that help people “get things done.” These skills allow us to successfully manage time, plan, focus, self monitor and organize.  In individuals that have executive function impairments these skills are weakened and as such school and relationships may be affected,  Executive function therapy may consist of small group or whole group sessions and skills such as think, plan, do and how to read a room are taught.  Individuals are explicitly taught organizational skills and how to strengthen working memory.  Real life and school/classroom applications are used to generalize these strategies.
