Executive Function & Social Emotional

Self-Regulation Sessions

 

Bright Futures LAB carefully uses curriculum and teaches lessons for Small-Group or Private sessions that are student-centered and focused on K-12th Grade. Instruction is tailored based on data provided to us from the student’s Educational Institution and through the Initial Assessment conducted by Bright Futures LAB. Small Groups during Executive Function & Social Emotional Self-Regulation sessions are based on age and grade levels. 


What is Executive Function & Social Emotional Self-Regulation?


Executive functions are a set of cognitive processes that are necessary for the cognitive control of behavior. The skills aid in selecting and successfully monitoring behaviors that facilitate the attainment of chosen goals. 


Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to:

  •  Plan

  •  Focus Attention

  • Remember Instructions

  • Juggle Multiple Tasks Successfully


Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to:

  •  Filter Distractions

  • Prioritize Tasks

  • Set and Achieve Goals

  • Control Impulses


When students have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and social-emotional development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.

Executive function and self-regulation skills depend on three types of brain function: 

  • Working Memory

  • Mental Flexibility

  • Self-Control. 

These functions are highly interrelated, and the successful application of executive function skills requires them to operate in coordination with each other. 

Executive Function & Social Emotional Self-Regulation Focus

  • Students will develop the confidence to be successful in everyday situations.

  • Students will learn to work with other peers their age and to express their feelings.

  • Achieve success beyond the bounds of the classroom walls. 

  • A safe place to ask questions in a Small-Group setting that a student might not feel comfortable asking in a traditional setting or situation. 

  • Instruction targets the student’s individualized needs, feelings, and supports the student’s preferred learning styles. 

  • Discuss, target, and clarify concepts with engaging interactive lessons.
