Why We Share: The Cognitive Connection Between Executive Functions and Language Skills
Language is one of the ways we communicate. It is one that when it is lost it is greatly missed. Kyra’s background and work with executive function skills with the smart but struggling learner, has led her to a better understanding of the connection between the two. Language is complex and understanding the role that executive functions influence on it is important.
