Children’s challenging behavior communicates to adults that the child does not feel safe, does not feel connected, and/or needs help with a missing or emerging executive skill: attention, time management, organization, prioritization, working memory, impulse control/emotional regulation, flexibility, empathy, metacognition, goal persistence/achievement and task initiation.
The Executive Skill Lending Library provides examples of specific ways to help children with each executive skill. It can be used to create intervention plans for children with chronic academic and behavioral issues.
