Foundational Skills for Elementary School Students

Elementary School is a critical time for the development of foundational Executive Function skills. Parents often begin to see signs of Executive Function challenges in their child in elementary school, when the child faces new expectations for self-management.

Parents and teachers may notice:

  • Behavior or emotional management challenges: the student seems to lack the same degree of self-control as peers, is easily frustrated, and/or has difficulty settling down to do work
  • Academic challenges: the student may lack persistence or often not start or complete even small assignments
