Want to help your kid get organised? We can help!

Executive functioning skills are the basis of planning, organising, initiating and following through with all tasks and assignments.  People use it to perform activities such as planning, organising, strategizing, paying attention, remembering details and managing time.

When children have had the opportunity to develop executive function skills successfully, this gives them lifelong benefits such as:

  1. School achievement – helping children remember lessons better, follow instructions, avoid distractions, persist at problem solving and control responses.
  2. Positive behaviour – develop life skills such as leadership, decision making, critical thinking, adaptability and teamwork.
  3. Good health – encourages children to make positive choices about their lifestyle as children with developed executive function skills respond well to stress and anxiety.

The 12 executive function skills include:

  • Planning and prioritisation
