EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING

EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING

Building a solid foundation for our students extends beyond developing literacy and numeracy skills.

We want students to be prepared for their future and central to this preparation is the development of Executive Functioning (EF) skills. The term executive functioning describes a set of cognitive skills that control and regulate certain abilities and behaviours.

Research about the brain and learning has shown that executive functioning skills are stronger predictors of future academic achievement and successful life than academic achievement alone. Working in conjunction with our Learning Enrichment And Development (LEAD) professionals, LCC has designed a program to help students develop their organizational and learning skills and understand how their brains work.

We introduce these skills at the start of high school, during the grade 7 orientation, and continue to focus on developing them throughout the Middle School experience. Our teachers have received specific training related to executive functioning. Parents receive feedback two times per year about their child’s EF skill development in each of his/her subjects.
