In a February 2018 article on Middleweb, Dr. Nancy Sulla demonstrates that “without the skills of executive function, you cannot access the information needed to transform thinking and produce powerful learning. Executive function is, therefore, the coveted missing link to student achievement.”

Dr. Sulla explains what executive function is and how it directly impacts a person’s ability to learn, even more so in today’s world of easy access to information on the internet. She provides a long list of executive function skills and explains how even simple tasks, such as patching a hole in a wall, require multiple executive function skills to succeed.
