Connections in Mind are a highly motivated team of experts committed to supporting executive function development in both children, adolescents, education providers and adults. Executive functions are a set of skills that reside in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. These skills help us to plan and organise our responses, behaviour and emotions. These skills have a profound impact on children’s educational success, act as a strong indicator on educational outcomes during adolescence and promote health and success in adulthood.
The core Executive Functioning (EF) skills include planning, prioritising, working memory, sustained attention, flexibility, emotional control and time management. These skills are critical not only for success in school, but for typical tasks in everyday life.
We believe executive skills training and coaching can be transformative, not only for the child but also for the parents, as well as for adults wanting to achieve more in their home and professional lives.
