SPOTLIGHT! On Executive Function and Self-Regulation

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

Enhancing and Practicing Executive Function Skills with Children from Infancy to Adolescence is a 16-page guide provided as a free download by the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University.

The guide 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 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.
