WHAT

IS

EFS?

EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING SKILLS DEFINED:

Executive function is like the CEO of the brain. It’s in charge of making sure things get done from the planning stages of the job to the final deadline. When kids have issues with executive functioning, any task that requires planning, organization, memory, time management and flexible thinking becomes a challenge. The more you know about the challenges, the better you’ll be able to help your child build his/her executive skills and manage the difficulties. Perfectly defined by our friends at Understood dot Org

EFS are skills for life and learning.
