What are the “Executive Functions?”

This is a short intro video on the Executive Functions done by the National Center for Learning Disabilities. It’s pretty good as far is it goes and I like the low-tech use of a flip board.

I’ve been coming across more evidence about the relationship between Executive Functions (EF) and Self-Regulation (SR). I wish more attention (no pun intended) went to the Emotional Regulation and stress response issues related to ADHD and Executive Functions. Most of the research and focus is on the academic consequences and remediation suggestions. As important as those are, I wish more folks start looking into the social and emotional implications.
