Children suffering from an executive function disorder may have a hard time forming relationships and being productive home and at school.
This is unsurprising, as the ability to control behavior, organize thoughts and emotions, and concentrate on daily tasks is a disadvantage to healthy development.
We help children with executive function disorders regulate their emotions, follow directions, and improve their organizational and time management skills. This will help them be more focused and happier at school, and in their own heads.

Brain Damage from Trauma, Strokes, or FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome)
The word “executive” is linked with authority, control and organization, and that general definition carries over into the cognitive one. Simply put, executive function refers to your brain’s ability to focus and get things done. Physically, these skills are housed in the frontal lobe and allow you to pay attention, follow through on tasks, manage time, plan and organize tasks and more.
