The Foundation of Success: What Everyone Should Know About Executive Function

Executive function is the complex collection of brain processes that enable us to identify, pursue, and achieve our goals. Whether it’s making breakfast or managing an organization, executive function regulates the attention, memory, effort, and emotion we need to be successful. This workshop shares essential information about how executive function develops and what gets in the way of achievement. Participants will be introduced to key strategies for building executive skills at home as well as at school and in the workplace.
