Executive Functions

Executive functions are a set of cognitive skills and abilities that help people set goals, strategize to achieve goals, adapt when necessary, and persist through to completion. Executive functions are described as goal-directed behaviors. Executive functions help us navigate changing circumstances and problem-solving. Three core executive functions (inhibitory controls, working memory, and cognitive flexibility) form the foundation for higher order skills.
