About Executive Function Counseling

The person who is unable to initiate a plan for completing a project and seeing it through to completion will benefit greatly from purposeful assistance through educational counseling. An executive function specialist can work with this person to strengthen executive function skills and build good habits. 

Executive function is the umbrella term to describe the fundamental skills one begins to develop as a child including: 

  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Attention
  • Planning
  • Task Initiation
  • Working Memory
  • Metacognition
  • Self-Control
  • Perseverance
  • Flexibility

The development of these skills begins in childhood and continues into the mid-20s. This means that children may express challenges with executive functioning differently during each stage of life. Anger, isolation and forgetfulness are often witnessed as students struggle to make sense of seemingly simple tasks.

Individuals with specific learning disabilities do not always struggle with executive functioning, and individuals who show signs of executive functioning issues do not always have a disorder. This makes finding the root of symptoms challenging, whether it be a disorder or a weakness.

Let’s work together to build your or your child’s executive function skills.
