Executive Functioning Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
Students with ADHD and executive function deficits experience academic and social and emotional difficulties throughout their school day. This paper summarizes research that has been provided regarding strategies to improve executive function skills in students with a diagnosis of ADHD. The studies in this paper were conducted within the last seven years and are presented in groups based on types of interventions of exercise and sensory integration, mindfulness, and computer based programs. The areas that I have chosen to give more attention to are those that can easily be implemented and practiced in a variety of school settings including the mainstream classroom, special education classes, during social work or counselor sessions and during transition or unstructured times of the students’ school day.
