The K&M Executive Functioning Workbook increases the student’s ability to plan, start, and finish work autonomously. It exercises the neurological activity that creates Executive Functioning by identifying the student’s aims and challenges, building thinking skills, and practicing organizational strategies. The program establishes academic independence as the student determines goals and develops the habits that will achieve them.

What is in the Workbook?

  Self-assessment in each school subject Scheduling time for homework, study, and other activities

How does the program work?

The program increases the student’s self-awareness of learning style, and active engagement in learning. To do so it follows 4 basic steps:

  Assessment
  Setting goals
  Learning and practicing skills
  Tracking progress

Schoolwork then serves to sharpen these abilities:

  Judging time accurately
  Building Working Memory
  Breaking down complex projects into manageable, orderly tasks;
  Correctly estimating how long tasks will take;
  Starting, stopping, and changing activities. 

Putting it all together:

Focused exercises and task-specific checklists make long-term planning, active reading techniques, note-taking, test preparation, and test-taking strategies into solid habits. At every new step, the student assesses his or her progress and creates new goals.
