Back to School Executive Function Checklist

Back to School Executive Function Checklist

Posted on: August 7th, 2018 by Neurohealth Associates

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”
  • Writing essays
  • Completing complex math
  • Completing long-term projects
  • And more!

Drop your email to get this free download to start helping your child from day one of back to school 2018.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
