Executive Function and the Transition to College: Opportunities for Success

May 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

  • What aspects of Executive Function processes are important in college?
  • What strategies can help prospective college students “gear up” for the EF challenges they will encounter?
  • What tips about EF and college success can we learn from the reflections of students themselves?

This presentation will help parents and college-bound students to understand executive function and its impact on college success.  Parents and students will learn how the EF demands of college differ from those in high school. We will watch video reflections of college students we have coached, in order to learn from their experiences. Finally, parents and students will leave with practical recommendations to help students develop the executive function strategies that they will need when they start college in the fall.
