Do you frequently find yourself rushing around in the morning rush looking for your child’s school ID card, notebooks, or even school shoes? Have you noticed that your child always needs to double-check their academic work with a classmate? Do you spend most of your waking hours trying to sort through your child’s perennially disorganized life? Chances are your child might be facing challenges with their Executive Function skills.
Executive function skills (EFS) refer to a set of cognitive abilities that enable individuals to plan, organize, initiate, sustain, and monitor their behavior in order to achieve goals. EFS are critical for success in school, work, and daily life.
In children, EFS are particularly important for academic achievement, social interaction, working memory, reasoning and emotional regulation. According to cognitive science and neuropsychology, children need executive function skills (EFS) like adults do to also complete a variety of daily tasks like getting ready for school, concentrating in class, and finishing homework.
Regardless of how brilliant they are, children who struggle with their EFS frequently have problems staying organized, controlling their impulses, and following through on tasks. Their capacity to perform to their full potential and succeed in school is hampered by this.
Thankfully, the human brain is neuroplastic, allowing it to change and rewire itself with time and support. This process can be aided by concrete tactics and deliberate memory practice, for example.
Brain training refers to a set of exercises or activities designed to improve cognitive skills by creating new neural connections in the brain and altering a person’s behavior. Brain training programs for children typically focus on Executive Function Skills, as these skills are crucial for academic success and overall well-being. There is evidence to suggest that brain training can improve EFS in children.
