  • Translates to importance of reflection and feedback
  • Components of Executive Function Based upon material from Barkley and Brown, I have outlined five general components of executive function that impact school performance: Working memory and recall (holding facts in mind while manipulating information; accessing facts stored in long-term memory.) Activation, arousal, and effort (getting started; paying attention; finishing work) Controlling emotions (ability to tolerate frustration; thinking before acting or speaking)Internalizing language (using "self-talk" to control one's behavior and direct future actions)Taking an issue apart, analyzing the pieces, reconstituting and organizing it into new ideas (complex problem solving).
