We love to slow down and have more unstructured time when summer finally arrives. However, there are still opportunities to foster the development of executive functioning skills. Executive functions are cognitive controls and self-regulation skills that help us manage all tasks, and they don’t stop over the summer. Skills such as time management, planning, problem-solving, and self-regulation continue to develop during the summer months. Creative experiences and intentional planning can make summer a productive time to strengthen executive functioning skills.
Establishing a rhythm to summer days that includes a routine, summer learning, and passion projects can continue to re-enforce and strengthen executive functioning skills.
If you are curious to learn more about SAA, and the student support experience, you can schedule a virtual meeting with admissions. We look forward to meeting you and hearing more about your child.
