What to do if your child’s teacher flags a “weak executive function”

  • Kate,

    Good overview of executive function, however it saddens me that in your opening paragraph, you were inflicted with a conference situation that was both uncomfortable and demeaning….adults sitting in children’s chairs. In our workday, teachers will often sit along children in child sized chairs, however at conference time things should be different. As a teacher, working as partners for a child’s benefit includes showing each other the courtesy of being comfortable and “adult” in discussing a child’s progress.

    Thanks for the comment – I had no idea that was not common practice as that is how the parent/teacher conferences are structured where I live. I agree, it would be more effective to have those kinds of discussions at the “grown up” teacher’s desk.

    As a teacher do you have any other thoughts or recommendations on helping a child who has “executive function issues?”
