    Executive functions let people plan, organize and complete tasks. Here’s a closer look at the different areas of executive function and the skills they affect.

    Learning works for kids (http://learningworksforkids.com/executive-functions/) Executive functions are brain-based cognitive skills that facilitate critical thinking and self-regulation.

These skills include flexibility, focus, organization, planning, self-awareness, self-control, time management, and working memory.
