Executive functioning abilities
These are skills and processes each of us uses every day to get things done and to plan what we need to do for activities in the future. (E.g., remember to buy paper for the printer today, so that I can print out my CV and post it tomorrow).
People use executive functioning skills to perform activities such as planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details and managing time and space. Executive functioning skills develop in early childhood and continue into early adulthood.
Occupational therapists work with various clients who may experience executive functioning difficulties due to a neurodevelopmental disorder, older age, a head injury or lack of opportunity to develop these skills.
