Success in school and jobs is highly dependent upon well-developed executive functioning skills. The mastery of skills such as goal setting, planning, organizing, task initiating, sustaining attention, shifting flexibly, working memory, inhibiting impulses and self-monitoring provides a path for improving academic performance and vocational success. Thankfully these cognitive skills can be developed with practice, and generalized to many aspects of life.

Strategies for Independence: Shifting the responsibility from you to your child
Are you constantly reminding your son or daughter of upcoming appointments? Do they forget books or assignments they need to bring to school?

Skills, such as planning, emotional regulation, sustained attention, organization, working memory, metacognition and time management, are vital in gaining more independence.
