Why is measuring Executive Function important?
The MEFS App™ assesses the neurocognitive skills most vital to academic and life success. These skills are centered on attention, impulse control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility. It is important to test and track the Executive Function skills performance of all children – even high academic performers – to ensure appropriate progress is being made.
Children with well-developed Executive Function skills are more likely to manage their emotions, demonstrate empathy, and achieve academic success in school regardless of their IQ or family background.
Research shows that the healthy development of Executive Function can be cultivated and improved through a variety of means, like play, autonomy-support, and language input.
