What is Executive Functioning and How Does it Affect Learning?

Is your child struggling in school?  “Refusing” to complete chores at home?  Is homework an epic battle every night?  Does your child complete the homework but forget to turn it in?  Does your child’s desk, bag, and room look like they were hit by a tornado?  Are their emotions intense and unpredictable?  Do you find yourself referring to them as “lazy”?  Perhaps the reason is a weakness in executive functioning.
