Executive Skills Coaching
In recent years, there has been a renewal of interest in the frontal lobes of the brain and their associated functions. While the anatomical term, frontal lobes, refers to the anterior one-third of the brain, executive functions refer to the psychological construct of interactive, yet, independent control functions within different regions of the frontal lobes.
Executive functions are called the “CEO” of the brain, as it is a loosely defined collection of brain processes that are responsible for planning, organization, working memory, cognitive flexibility, abstract thinking, rule acquisition, initiating appropriate actions and inhibiting inappropriate actions, and selecting relevant sensory information. This area of the brain is also associated with signs and symptoms associated with AD/HD, as there is typically a breakdown in executive functions.
At our center, we work with children, adolescents, and adults who are struggling with executive deficits, providing a context wherein the individual can learn strategies and techniques to circumvent such weaknesses and live a more fulfilling lifestyle.
