Parents looking for guidance when it comes to improving their children’s executive functioning skills may be overwhelmed by all of the information available to them on the internet, so where do you begin? A good place to start is finding resources by professionals, and Youtube videos are a great way that professionals provide their expertise and knowledge. What’s great about watching videos is how easily accessible they are and how easy they are to add into your daily routine. Finding time in your busy day as a parent for researching and reading can be difficult, but throwing a video on while you make dinner or get dressed for the day is so simple. One thing that professionals make videos about for parents is executive functions. Executive functions include skills like organization, time management, planning, flexibility, working memory, and focus. Videos by professionals often outline what executive functions are and offer guidance to parents on how to help their children’s executive function skills grow.
