Do any of these describe your child?

• Disorganized desk and a messy backpack

• Often loses things

• Forgets to finish or turn in assignments

• Has trouble getting started and sustaining effort at homework

• Seems to “space out” when given complex instructions

• Has difficultly planning ahead and managing time

These are signs of problems with Executive Function, the essential mental tasks, including planning, strategizing, organizing, setting goals, and paying attention to the important details, that help us get things done.

Poor executive function can impact a student academically, socially and emotionally. Join us to learn how we can help students overcome their executive function challenges.
