Happy Holidays, Smarties!

It is so critical to understand executive functioning because EVERYTHING that has to do with “doing” life is impacted by executive functioning. There are many different definitions of executive functioning (EF) and in this episode, Rachel & Steph discuss what executive functioning is in the context of educational therapy. They highlight 7 domains of executive functioning (organizing/planning/prioritizing, time, memory, motivation, stress management, self-knowledge/metacognition and sustaining effort/processing) that impact a person’s ability to function in school and life.
