Both at home and at school, students need executive function strategies to handle challenging tasks as they set goals, shift flexibly, organize materials and information, and self-monitor and check their behavior and their work. Teachers and parents do a lot to support the executive function needs of students; however, when EF expectations and supports are different at home and at school, EF difficulties may arise.
