Teaching techniques & activities to bolster executive functions
Executive functions are an essential skillset that are at the heart of our daily activities—we all need them, even when school is not in session. Summer can be a great time to bolster executive functions across all places in which we play and learn. Many people don’t think about executive functions beyond helping individuals organize and carry out academic assignments. Yet, the organized thinking that results in the production of goal driven behaviors and helps individuals through their academic assignments is the same type of thinking that helps them with social problem solving and decision making.
Through the Social Thinking Methodology, we break down the executive functioning concept into smaller, teachable units by addressing goal setting, action plans, perspective taking and organization.
