Executive Functioning Enhancement

What Is Executive Functioning? 

Executive functions are central processes that are most intimately involved in giving organization and order to our actions and behavior. They are the control center of the brain that allows us to do more complex cognitive functions. Executive functions involve planning for the future and strategic thinking, the ability to inhibit or delay responding, initiating behavior, and shifting between activities flexibly. Problems with executive functions can impact working memory, organization, regulation, inhibition, starting tasks, and task shifting.

What Can Alter Executive Functioning? 

The parts of the brain that control executive functioning, the frontal lobes, have an impact on every single neuropsychological function in the brain. So when executive functioning is impaired, you can see struggles in all aspects of daily functioning.

How Can Neurofeedback Help?

Neurofeedback teaches the brain self-regulation, something people with executive functioning lack, in a pleasant yet highly effective way. They typically have too many unfocused brain waves and not enough focused brain waves in the frontal lobe region. Neurofeedback can alter the amount of and ratios of these waves to help retrain the brain and therefore reduce symptoms.

How Can Biofeedback Help?

Biofeedback is designed to help the Central Nervous System (CNS) to calm down so one can more readily engage. For those with behavioral issues, their CNS is often more easily overstimulated. Biofeedback uses subtle changes in the body to consciously register mindful acts leading to self-regulation, which results in increased focus and calming.

How Can Counseling Help?

Behavioral therapy, parent coaching, and executive functioning training gives you the tools to learn new, more productive ways to deal with behaviors. We combine psychoeducation with research-based tools that empower parents and children for change. Whether working with our on-staff behaviorist or one of our therapists, we coach and support parents through the implementation of new techniques.
