Executive functions are a set of higher-level cognitive tasks that enable children to ultimately perform most independently and successfully as an adult. These executive function skills, however, start to emerge at a very young age, and should increase as the child gets older.
We evaluate and treat executive functions in children of all ages as we believe it is important to think of the very long term goal of enabling your child to be a functioning adult in society, the planning for which begins NOW!
We address executive functions as applicable during therapy and as part of a home program. We work out of a specific executive function workbook that the family is requested to purchase and bring to each therapy session for carryover.
