About Executive Functioning Supports:

Executive functioning skills are essential self-regulation skills that help individuals accomplish daily tasks. We use these skills to set goals, and plan ways to accomplish our goals, navigate and assess our progress along the path to complete goals, regulate our emotions, and adjust our plan, if necessary. These skills are the bridge between an individual’s potential and what they are able to achieve. Variability in these skills have the capacity to interfere with a student’s capacity to demonstrate the extent of their knowledge and intellect to others. Because these skills play a crucial role in most aspects of life, weaknesses in executive functioning skills can impact an individual’s ability to achieve and to reach their true potential across all aspects of their live
