Executive Function Skills

The lack of self-regulation in children is cited as an increasing problem in schools today. Behavioral and academic issues often result from underlying problems with executive function. Recent longitudinal research has demonstrated that executive function skills are the strongest predictor of academic outcomes in grade 3. EASTCONN staff can work with school districts to increase the executive function skills of preschool through grade 1 students. We provide training and on-site coaching to administrators and teachers in implementing strategies to support children's self-regulation, while increasing their literacy and math skills.

Benefits: Increased self regulation and executive function skills of children lead to improved academic and social outcomes.
