Abstract

Executive function skills are critical for both school and personal success, but have been traditionally under-addressed in academic settings. Recent advances in the field of neuroscience, and specifically those dealing with neuroplasticity, have provided new understanding of the causes of executive dysfunction and how we can use this information to remediate these weaknesses in the classroom, even for those with typical executive function development, by teaching these skills as part of the curriculum.
