Master Your Executive Functioning Skills
Unlock Student Potential and Achieve Academic Success
Executive functioning skills can be critical in today’s virtual learning environment. Luckily, we are here to help learning for students with executive function deficits become easier.
What Are Executive Functioning Skills?
Executive Functioning skills are the skills that we use to set a goal, make a plan, and then do the steps needed to complete the plan and meet the goal.
As our world grows in advancement, the distractions grow at an equal, sometimes, greater pace. With or without a specific executive functions disorder, training executive functions skills is important in problem solving, expressing/controlling emotions, task initiation, and task completion. These learning skills in the brain are like command operations in a computer. When they are working, we do really well, but when they are not, we tend to forget to turn in homework or are late to appointments. A lack of EF skills can also lead to work anxiety, avoidance, and even depression. Every individual has a limited capacity for executive function skills before they get exhausted and overwhelmed.
The Three Main Areas Of Executive Functioning Skills
Holding on to information and putting it to its correct use. Executing the sequence of looking up the telephone number for pizza delivery, finding your phone, making the call and ordering pizza is an example of working memory.
Looking at things in more than one way. If you are preparing a presentation and decide that graphs would be more effective than pie charts, you are using cognitive flexibility by using the ability to think of another solution.
Staying focused on a task and ignoring distractions. In today’s virtual learning environment, it could be described as resisting Instagram when you are taking lecture notes. It is using self-control during a task.
Our Executive Functioning Strategies And Game Plan
Building executive functions skills in the brain is a lot like working out. We work with each family through our virtual learning academy to figure out what works and what doesn’t. We provide strategies to help learning for students become easier. Here is the step-by-step breakdown of our virtual learning academy for building EF skills.
In this first session, our coaches will work with the family to understand the areas that need improvement, provide strategies, and come up with a game plan.
Our coaches work with each student for 1 to 1.5 hours to review their week, talk about strategies that could work and come up with a plan to implement.
Our coaches work with each student twice a week for 15 minutes to see how implementation is during the week. They provide feedback and guidance as needed.
Our coaches will provide an email, updating parents on progress and how to best provide support at home for their student. Positive encouragement is vital!
