What is Learning How to Learn all about?

What is executive functioning?
Executive Function is the director of our brain. It’s what tells us how and when to get things done and allows us to manage our performance across all areas of our lives: social, academic, emotional, extracurricular, financial, and career.

Why is executive functioning so important?
Executive functioning skills are oftentimes the root cause of gaps between what a student knows and what they fail to show in their school work and grades. Difficulty with executive function causes anxiety and erodes confidence, as students struggle to meet the demands of school and real world life. Strong executive functioning skills make the difference between an individual who excels through life, and one who is a constant underachiever.
