EXECUTIVE FUNCTION COACHING

To build true independent life skills

 

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. When these functions are impaired, it can be very difficult to go about daily life without frustration. Conditions that often lead to impaired executive function include ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, Tourette's syndrome, and many more.
