Executive Function Training
What are Executive Functions?
Executive functions include higher-order cognitive skills involved in controlling and coordinating other cognitive abilities and behaviours. (cite 3) Some executive functions include working memory, cognitive flexibility, multi-tasking, problem solving, planning, and self control. (cite 4)
Training executive functions involves practicing computerized exercises and developing new strategies with a therapist. Through this process people can improve their cognitive abilities and become more active in their everyday lives.
