One of the newest discoveries in brain development is the importance of executive function (EF), a set of cognitive abilities responsible for self-monitoring, life management, and emotional regulation. EF is critical for social development, family relationships, and academic success. Understanding executive function relates to everything from decision-making around health routines to managing technology, problem-solving, planning, and reaching your goals, and relates to the practical benefits of mindfulness. For anyone living with ADHD, understanding executive function is not just an academic concept, but is the key to comprehensive care. This talk includes a review of current research that supports practical choices that foster resilience and let you set yourself up to thrive.
