If your child struggles with executive functioning skills, learning difficulties may become more obvious in the middle school years.
Executive functioning difficulties are not a learning disability on their own. Rather, they are weaknesses in a set of higher order cognitive skills that are crucial to learning.
Your child has been assigned a series of long-term projects that are due in a variety of subjects. Instead of planning, organizing and initiating the work in advance, she tries to cram them all the night before they’re due.
Your child reads a book assignment, but is unable to summarize and sequence the events that occurred. You may also find yourself constantly repeating directions, because your child can’t follow them. Keeping track of deadlines, assignments, notes, and homework can be very overwhelming, and learning how to plan, organize, and initiate tasks are executive functions that are required to be addressed and taught in order to succeed in the middle school years and beyond.
The ACES Program @haftrschool provides intervention and remediation for the executive functions required including organization, time management, task initiation, planning, and prioritizing in order to help your child succeed. #haftr #acesprogram #yeshivalearningprogram #speechandlanguagetherapy #slplife #slpeeps #ashaigers
