What are Executive Function Skills?
Executive Function (EF) skills are a crucial set of mental processes that help individuals manage their behaviors and allocate resources to achieve future goals. These skills enable us to prioritize tasks, plan and organize, filter distractions, overcome procrastination, maintain focus, and self-monitor for work-related quality. Executive Functions primarily occur in the prefrontal cortex, the last area of the brain to mature, and they develop over time at different rates for different individuals.
The Impact of Executive Dysfunction
While executive dysfunction is not a formal mental health diagnosis, it often results from underlying health conditions or neurodevelopmental disorders. Conditions associated with executive dysfunction include:
Dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease or vascular dementia
Intellectual or developmental disabilities
Mood disorder episodes
Persistent mental illnesses like Schizophrenia
