WHAT IS EXECUTIVE FUNCTION?
Executive Function skills can be described as the CEO of our brain. It is responsible for planning, executing and carrying out a person’s daily tasks and responsibilities. Working memory, critical thinking, planning, and execution are all part of our executive functions.
