What is executive function?
• A set of mental processes that helps connect past experience with present action. Used to perform activities such as planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space.
• Actions we perform so as to accomplish self-control, goal-directed behavior, and the maximization of future outcomes.
• In school, at home, or in the workplace, we’re called on all day, every day, to self-regulate behavior.
