The Rush NeuroBehavioral Center’s mission is to empower young people with social, emotional and learning challenges to build on their strengths and thrive in life and relationships. The Woman’s Board is helping to fund the implementation of their Executive Functioning. Executive Functions are the cognitive processes that occur in the frontal lobe area of the brain that allow us to plan, organize, make decision, pay attention, and regular behavior. They allow us to solve problems and evaluate decisions we make.
The Executive Functions program focuses on teaching students organizational skills, time management strategies, the ability to assess individual strengths, how to set goal and the utilization of study skills for optimal student success.
