So, you are asking about the executive function? I think of that as more something to work on. My son has an executive function delay. It has nothing to do with intelligence, as you know. Individuals with executive dysfunction struggle with planning, problem-solving, organization, and time management. We worked with an occupational therapist to help with this. This is the part of your system that 'helps you get things done" is how we think of it in our house. There is organization EF and regulation EF. Regulation EF is changing your response to what is going on around you (in my son's case, an example of his regulation issues are that once upset, he can't let something go or calm down easily). Organization is gathering information and structuring it to understand it and organizing appropriate steps to respond.
Things that help:
Take a step-by-step approach to work.
Rely on visual aids to get organized.
Use tools like time organizers, computers, or watches with alarms.
Make schedules, and look at them several times a day.
Ask for written and oral instructions whenever possible.
Plan for transition times and shifts in activities.
My son is big on lists and planning things out fully.
To improve time management:
Create checklists, and estimate how long each task will take.
Break long assignments into chunks, and assign time frames for completing each one.
Use calendars to keep track of long-term assignments, due dates, chores, and activities.
Write the due date on the top of each assignment.
*have an organizing calendar that you refer to multiple times a day.
My son has work areas for different things. His school work area has all his 'tools' and he fights to cut down on clutter which can make organization worse. He has a relax area and has the things he likes there too. We came up with a system that ever 2 days, he looks at these two areas and cleans them up. It takes about 5 minutes and he does it first thing from getting home from school. Has made a habit of it.
Do you have issues with flexible thinking? That's problematic for my son. And how is your impulse control?
