Higher functioning cognitive skills such as organization, planning, previewing, inhibition and self-regulation are essential for successful social, academic and interpersonal development. These are skills that some children are born with, but many are not. The great news! We can teach skill sets to children that will calm their bodies, enhance their thinking, improve their learning and help them to become better learners.
