Developing Skills for Life-Long Success
Executive Functioning interventions are the strategies educators, parents, and clinicians can utilize to develop EF skills for children of all ages. With our primary focus on early childhood, we’ll provide you with the necessary resources to effectively facilitate EF development, including our evidence-based Intervention Guide and a library of exercises that can be used to integrate EF training in multiple circumstances

Create customized strategies to integrate EF training into existing academic activities
Train staff about Best Practices for EF using the Reflection Sciences’ Intervention Guide
Measure improvements easily and accurately with our MEFS assessment
Intervention Today, Independence Tomorrow
EF has less to do with possessing intellectual knowledge than it does with being able to use knowledge purposefully and put it into practice in everyday scenarios. Children with good EF skills, who can pay attention and reflect on what they are learning, acquire academic content more easily and are more likely to remember that content when they need it. EF measured in childhood has been proven to predict school readiness, academic achievement, and educational attainment, as well as career success, health, wealth, and well-being in adulthood. By providing EF interventions for disruptive behavior disorders in children, parents and educators can help ensure child success in the future.
Kiko's Thinking Time Games, by Kiko Labs
Kiko Labs worked with neuroscientists from the University of California, Berkeley and Harvard to develop Kiko's Thinking Time, an adaptive training program for early learners, aged 3 to 7. Kiko's Thinking Time uses a suite of activities to target skills foundational to cognitive learning: executive function, reasoning, and spatial skills.
Kiko's Thinking Time Games were developed from a large body of scientific research. Each game is based on a neuropsychological task that is known to have cognitive benefits in lab studies. Kiko Labs turned these tasks into engaging games that children love to play.
Challenging, not Frustrating
Children try to help Kiko the fox get to the treasure. Along the way, they complete a series of fun exercises that require use of executive function, reasoning, and spatial skills. Kiko's Thinking Time is unique in that each game adapts to and progresses with each child's ability, keeping them challenged, but not frustrated.
Track Progress Over Time
Kiko's Thinking Time keeps track of each child's performance, allowing their parents and teachers to track their progress over time, measure improvement, and compare their cognitive abilities to those of their peers.

Take Action for Young Learners
Reflection Sciences’ Intervention Guide offers educators and parents effective, evidence-based ways to promote the healthy development of Executive Function (EF) skills in young children, through Grade 2.
Written by our Co-founder, Dr. Phil Zelazo, a leading expert in developmental cognitive neuroscience and early education, the Intervention Guide includes background information about EF and early brain development, as well as best practices for EF intervention. Readers are taught how to structure engaging activities that help children practice and develop their Reflection skills in the classroom and in other everyday settings. Contents include classic games that have been modified to challenge children’s EF; ways to embed EF training into academic curricula; mindfulness practices for children; and ways of engaging families in the cultivation of children’s EF skills.
