Many children who learn and think differently have trouble with executive function. All children with ADHD struggle with it.
These difficulties don’t mean children aren’t smart. Brain differences make it hard for children like Andrew to pay attention, set goals, get started, and stay on task. This includes things like doing homework and daily routines.
These kinds of struggles are often misunderstood. People might think children are just being lazy or aren’t capable of doing more. But with the right support, children with executive functioning issues can thrive.
There are lots of ways to help. Support can help children like Andrew get organised and stay on top of assignments. It can also help them feel less stressed and more confident.
One effective tool that can be used to strengthen executive function is Biolink Attention Training; a neurocognitive learning system that improves cognitive skills associated with executive function, which reduces impulsivity, helps with task switching, aids in rational thoughts, supports the ability to plan and organise, and benefits self-regulation.
Biolink Attention Training can create new neural pathways to increase executive function to improve brain function and increase self-esteem. Our artificial intelligence, Sheer Genius, automatically sets mini goals for each individual. This teaches you that being perfect is not the goal. Simply striving for small steps of achievement each day is the key to success.
