Executive functioning skills are the skills that guide our ability to plan, organize, memorize, problem solve and a variety of other life-management tasks. Students who struggle with these skills need support and guidance that will help them navigate the classroom successfully and transfer learned skills to life after school.
The Tool Box has compiled an informative piece on Executive Functioning Skills describing what executive functions are and throughout the piece, where you can find strategies to help your student.
There are also some fantastic apps that are now being used. You can find them in the Best Apps and Sites for Improving Executive Function. Some of the apps are paid apps, but the majority that were listed were free and easy to access.
