They help you see what types of things you need to work on a lot and what things you don’t. —Leslier, ninth grader As students develop an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the demands of each learning situation, they realize the importance of executive function processes for academic success. When they use strategies that address the core executive function processes, they also become independent learners and flexible thinkers, and can more easily bypass their weaknesses while using their strengths to learn efficiently.
