This system relies on the seamless collaboration of pilots, navigators, controllers, and weather forecasters. Similarly, executive function involves the coordination of various cognitive abilities to manage complex tasks effectively.

Our dedication to mastering Executive Function skills is driven by our understanding of how pivotal these skills are to your child’s success.

Development of Executive Function Skills

Unlike physical attributes, executive function skills are not innate; they must be developed. This development is most intense before age 5 and during another significant growth period in the teenage years into early adulthood. Children’s brain development varies, influenced by genetic factors and their environment. Consequently, some children may require more practice than others to strengthen these skills.
