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.

Kyra Minichan is not a traditional SLP. With another degree in education in addition to her degree in speech-language pathology, Kyra provides online educational services to the smart but struggling learner. Her experience in neurotrauma has taught her how to rehabilitate brains and help the smart but struggling student succeed in academics while bringing their family peace.
