Executive Functioning and Learning

Our brains are not fully developed until the mid-20s, so it’s no wonder that our adolescents still need help with the all important executive functioning skills. In this episode, we talk about the often underestimated yet pivotal aspect of cognitive growth: executive functioning in teens.

Tune in as our guest host, Natalie Tamburello, discusses executive functioning with Dr. Sharmila Roy, and Stacey Soderquist both from The Schwab Learning Center at CHC. They talk about real-life scenarios and the impact of executive functioning skills on our ability to complete a task, plus how we can nurture executive functioning skills to empower adolescents to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. They also explore the role of organizational tools and communication techniques in enhancing these cognitive abilities.
