What’s Executive Functioning?

Many of the general population are born with the skills needed to focus their attention, remember their things to do, plan, organize and multi-task successfully. These skills are called “Executive Functioning.”

However, some individuals may struggle with “Executive Functioning” due to their personality and cognitive profile, causing a negative impact on their quality of life. For many, the stressors experienced can be a trigger for impaired mental health and mood.

At Atlanta Center for Specialized Care we treat impaired executive functioning and teach the skills needed to improve proficiency in this area.

Do you struggle with things like this?

  • Task Completion
  • Time Management
  • Procrastination
  • Organization
  • Cleanliness
  • Planning
  • Self-care

Do you say stuff like this?

  • I don’t know where to start
  • I am always running behind
  • I just can’t get myself to do it until the last minute when I am overwhelmed.
  • I get so stressed trying to pull it all together
  • It looks like a bomb went off… (room, home, office)
  • I have a hard time deciding what to keep and what to toss
  • I sometimes forget to… (brush teeth, hair, shower, wash clothes.)

Do you hear things like this from others?

  • You are so smart, why are you always behind?
  • You disappoint me that you are not trying
  • You need to (take a shower, brush your teeth, change your clothes..)
