SFSS is looking forward to continuing our exploration of executive functions both in and out of school. Executive functions are necessary for human beings to understand and perform tasks. In a world with increasingly more and more information available - that is more and more accessible, it is the ability to use information effectively that counts. Executive Functions have their own developmental course throughout childhood, adolescence and into young adulthood. As the brain structures are developed so are the EFs. EFs are part of the neural circuits routed in the frontal lobes. They need to be taught and they need to be practiced as the child grows. Our upcoming parent series will focus on how to support your child in building EF’s and EF skills, such as working memory, sense of time, prospective memory, self activation, emotional self- control, hindsight & forethought and real life applications & exercises. The 6 week series begins on Friday Jan.30. SFSS Department, Celebrate the Children
