Your child daydreams regularly in class. She forgets to bring home the materials and books she needs to do her homework. She has difficulty remembering all the steps required to solve a multi-step math or word problem. She takes longer than most kids to memorize multiplication tables and facts. These are all academic challenges that students with weak executive functions may exhibit in the classroom.
Below we have provided a checklist by ADDitude Magazine to get a bead on your child’s possible struggles and their accompanying measures to help them.
Some of the items are:
- Starting and finishing homework
- Losing homework
- Following directions
- Changing activities aka “shifting gears”

- Completing complex math
- Completing long-term projects
- And more!
