Executive Function Skills for Success

Research suggests that executive function skills are essential for students to succeed in school and adults to succeed throughout life. Executive function is a set of neurologically-controlled organization and regulation skills that are highly relevant to school and workplace settings. These skills include:

Organizing Materials

Planning & Prioritizing

Task Initiation

Flexible Thinking

Visual Spatial Memory

Working Memory

Cognition

Self Monitoring

The brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses

According to Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child,
when children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills,
individuals and society experience lifelong benefits.
