Executive Functioning/ Organization

Back Home
Executive functioning is the processing to create a plan, organize and initiate work.  Our ability to use executive functioning impacts our abilities to organize physical space and materials, manage time, plan and complete work and assignments.  It also impacts how we regulate our emotions throughout.  Strong executive functioning skills create a foundation not just for learning, but success in life.

Do you find yourself getting frustrated with your child because they seem to take a long time to complete even the simplest of tasks?  Do they seem to get overwhelmed by tasks and chores, even though they are the same chores every week?  Is your child unorganized and losing things all the time?  Although it may sometimes feel like they are being lazy and avoiding, they may be lacking executive functioning skills.


There are a variety of tools and strategies that we use to assist students in developing Executive Functioning Strategies.  Some examples of strategies we may use to teach these skills are:


  • Use of checklists and self monitoring strategies
  • Use of time limits
  • Planning and mapping out projects and use of time
  • Establishing routines
  • Incentivizing students with rewards

Executive Functioning skills help provide a strong foundation for approaching tasks and projects.  This can include things as simple as a bedtime routine, cleaning a room or completing a 1 page assignment.  It can also be as complex as a long term school project, studying for a big exam or applying to high schools!
