Executive Function Skills are a set of skills that help us navigate a situation so that we can achieve a desired outcome. Diving a little deeper into understanding Executive Function Skills in child development, we begin to see how it is based on a child's ability to develop relationships.
1, 2, 3 Executive Function Skills
- WORKING MEMORY - When a child can listen and follow directions.
- MENTAL FLEXIBILITY - When a child is thrown a curve ball...how they handle it.
- SELF-CONTROL - When a child can contain impulsive actions.
Sound emotional development (part of the LUME Approach) is the foundation of Executive Function Skills and leads to academic readiness and future success. Learn more about these critical skills from the Center of the Developing Child at Harvard University.
