Managing your time.
Paying attention to tasks.
Switching focus between tasks and activities.
Planning and organizing details, projects & tasks.
Avoiding saying or doing the wrong thing (acting or speaking impulsively).
Doing things based on having learned from past experiences.
Regulating your emotions.
Organizing yourself (time, planning, belongings, life).
These are things that we all need to live our best life, right?
No better time to start working on them than right now!
EF (that’s what the cool kids call it!) can be developed at any age or stage, and helps with school, career, and relationships.
Some EF deficits may look like this:
focusing on only one part of what was said, forgetting other instructions.
becoming easily frustrated and angry when things are not going as expected.
persisting with a plan long after it is evident that it is not going to work.
difficulty getting started on things.
becoming overwhelmed about where to start, focusing on the small, insignificant, or easy parts first.
not being able to pick up on social cues.
your son or daughter will be driving soon but is not good at sustaining attention and filtering out distractions.
If any of these apply to you or someone you know, improved EF may be the answer.

providing science-based information you can really use.
