SPOTLIGHT! On Executive Function and Self-Regulation*

Executive function and self-regulation (EF/SR) skills provide critical supports for learning and development, and while individual aren’t born with these skills, they are born with the potential to develop them through interactions and practice.

This 16-page guide* (available for download free of charge) describes a variety of activities and games that represent age-appropriate ways for adults to support and strengthen various components of EF/SR in children. Each chapter of this guide contains activities suitable for a different age group, from infants to teenagers. The guide may be read in its entirety (which includes the introduction and references) or in discrete sections geared to specific age groups.
