Seeking help for weaknesses in executive functioning allows trained professionals to help you with mental processes used to plan and organize, sustain attention, complete tasks, manage your emotions, problem-solve, control impulses and monitor your thoughts.
You may or may not have a diagnosis of ADHD, learning disability, or pervasive developmental delay, but anyone can have trouble with executive functioning. Students and young adults find executive function training highly effective for learning to manage complex study and life schedules as we age.
Adults use executive function training to perform better at work, organize their possessions and priorities, and equip themselves with strategies for increasing success, meeting goals, and improving relationships. Training can lead to improvement in remembering and retaining information, focusing longer on tasks, decreasing procrastination, completing tasks, organizing schoolwork, managing time better, and practicing thinking before acting.
