I am a student of learning. I study Executive Dysfunction and work withpeople who suffer from it. The term “executive functioning” refers to mental processes involved in goal-directed activity. The work on this has been primarily done in Neuropsychology but the implications for educators are important. Executive functioning has been rather under-discussed in the school context as yet where these issues have been attributed to failures in discipline rather than brain function.
I am also a homeschooling mother of two teenagers, the wife of an American History teacher (which I used to be too), a dog, cat, and most other creatures lover, and knitter.
