When a student struggles with Executive Functioning, it is common to see difficulty with the following:
Last minute cramming
Not knowing where to start
Transitioning between activities
Systematic, clear instruction and strategies are at the heart of Executive Functioning remediation. It is important to model, teach, and test different coping and metacognitive strategies so that the student can adopt new ways of thinking about and doing work.
Through targeted exercises and real-world implementation of such structure, students begin to build new ways of thinking, habits, and routines that directly impact not only schoolwork, but also day-to-day living.
