We focus on the skills instead of the label
Everyone learns differently and as a result, strong or deficient executive functioning skills is what impacts our learning, not the label of a specific disability.
In other words, individuals with ADHD, autism or anxiety may all struggle with weak skills in sustained attention, task initiation, self-regulation, organization and time management. So, does it really matter what their label or diagnosis is? It is more effective to proactively understand and address the specific executive functioning skills than reactively band-aid the problem because of a diagnosis or disability.
Our approach at MLS is to address these skills with all students, not just students with diagnosed disabilities, as many students suffer with at least one deficient executive functioning skill which may be impacting their learning or motivation to learn.
