Does your teen struggle with time management, completing tasks, staying focused, and getting organized? These are the executive functions, a set of processes that all have to do with managing oneself and one’s resources in order to achieve a goal. They are neurologically-based skills involving mental control and self-regulation. EFFECT utilizes evidence-based interventions to help your teen build skills in these areas and more.
