Forgotten appointments, unfinished homework, distractibility, procrastination and difficulties organizing thoughts present intimidating obstacles to make progress for anyone… And the strategies that work so well for others seem to fall short when an executive function (EF) deficit is present.
Your work with individuals struggling with EF concerns may be some of your most rewarding — yet it’s often the work that leaves you the most frustrated and exhausted!
