Schools services

Strong executive functions are needed at all stages of school life, but particularly the adolescent years, when independent learning skills are crucial to student’s success. These skills can be taught helping students to better access the education on offer to them.

We think that paying attention to executive functions at school and in the classroom is necessary for some students but good for all.  Click here for more information
