“Build, don’t be their executive function.“
In this week’s podcast spotlight, we give examples for developing executive function that are age-appropriate because the same strategies that worked when the child was 7 shouldn’t be the same ones they use when they’re 25. As the child gets older the questions we ask to activate their visual inner language become more open-ended, thus empowering the child to become a more independent and assertive adult.
