Too often the term ‘Executive Function’ (EF) is known but not truly understood. As a result, students who may procrastinate, turn in work late, or perform at a level that doesn’t meet their intellectual potential are often misinterpreted as lazy, unmotivated or having poor attitudes or behavior.
When school administrators, teachers and counselors truly understand the impact of Executive Functions, when and how they develop in students and how to recognize an EF challenge vs. a behavioral problem, the dynamic between students and schools can change dramatically. By learning how strategies and study skills can support underdeveloped capabilities until they have fully matured, teachers can support dramatically improved student performance can improve dramatically. With simple, evidence-based strategies, teachers can provide the necessary scaffolding for students whose own study skills and strategies haven’t developed yet.
