Excerpt:

What are Executive Functioning Skills?

Executive functioning skills (EF), located in the brain’s pre-frontal cortex, help direct and control other brain functions and movements that lead to academic and personal success. Executive functioning (EF) skills have been compared to the conductor of an orchestra or the flight control tower at an airport. These skills will continue to develop until around the age of 25 when research in brain development has shown that the pre-frontal cortex reaches maturity.

In K-12 students, whose executive functioning skills are not yet fully developed, regulation of these skills often falls on parents and educators. These adults often function as the frontal lobe of the developing student’s brain and provide the needed external prompts, cues, and reminders to accomplish tasks, manage time, and stay organized.
