Executive Function is the brain’s “air traffic control system” that enables us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and manage multiple tasks successfully.
When children have opportunities to develop executive function they experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development and also enable positive behaviour and allow us to make healthy choices.
Children aren’t born with Executive Function skills, but instead need to develop them. And providing the opportunities and support they need for this is one of our most important roles as educators.
