Executive functioning skills are mental processes that help us tolerate change, control our emotions, resist impulses, juggle information, make a plan, and start and finish tasks. Much like an air traffic controller who manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways at a busy airport, the brain needs this skill set to get things done in an organized and efficient way. In this session you will learn about these skills and their importance for both school and personal success.
