Executive Functioning Screener
What is Executive Functioning?
Executive functioning, or what I call, the conductor of the brain, is the process of the mind perceiving and making sense of the information we receive from our senses. Helping us to create meaning from what we see, hear, touch, taste and experience, executive functioning also allows us to focus our attention, self-regulate, think about new information, and make connections to prior knowledge.
The Good Sensory Executive Functioning Screener is a free, 20 question assessment that can help parents, teachers, and professionals quickly uncover the likelihood of executive functioning challenges. Individual items also shed light on specific difficulties that require attention.
This Executive Functioning Screener is based on my comprehensive, doctoral training, an extensive literature review, and over 25 years working as an Executive Functioning (EF) coach. This screener offers a simple 20 item, Likert scale that addresses the common symptoms. It is an informal test and is best used to indicate whether formal testing and/or EF coaching should be pursued.
