What are Executive Function Skills?

Many individuals with learning differences may also experience Executive Function (EF) skills challenges. Working on and developing EF skills can help you in all aspects of your life. You can navigate school, work and various everyday environments more efficiently. Improving EF skills helps you focus attention in class or meetings, organize materials and schedules, regulate emotions and persevere through challenges.

Executive Function Assessment for Children and Youth

Do you have a child (age 5-18) that struggles with organizational skills or keeping up in class? The Executive Function Assessment (EFA) is a tool that gives you a picture of your child’s strengths and areas of need for each executive function skill. Create a targeted plan at home and school to help your child develop the skills they need to thrive in all facets of their lives.  

Does your child have an IEP? Bring this standardized psychological report to your school team and incorporate executive function goals into your IEP. Help your school team understand your child’s behaviour and how it is connected to developing their executive function skills.

How it Works

Here are the simple steps for completing the EFA for your child or youth.

  1. Call or email LDS to get started. Come to our East Vancouver Learning Centre to pick up a paper copy of the assessment or call/email and request a link to complete the assessment online.
  2. Fill out the assessment. Once you have the assessment, a parent/guardian or teacher can complete it for your child. You can also have a parent/guardian and a teacher both complete the assessment for a more fulsome picture of your child’s behaviour. (If you ask a teacher to complete the assessment, please note that they must have known and worked with your child for at least six months.) It takes approximately 20 minutes to fill out the assessment.
  3. Submit the Assessment. Bring the completed paper assessment to one of our Learning Centres. The digital assessment will automatically be submitted online.
  4. Attend a Debrief Session. A member of our team will contact you within two weeks of receiving your completed assessment to schedule a 45-minute session in which you will walk through the results of your child’s report and next-step strategies for support.

Cost

The EFA package includes the assessment, scoring, a comprehensive 25-page report, and a 45-minute debrief session with a qualified professional.

  • The total cost is $120.
  • This amount will be billed when you are given your assessment to complete.
  • We fundraise tirelessly to be able to offer a generous sliding scale for all our programs. For the EFA, we are pleased to provide this assessment at $60 for families with a household annual net income of less than $120,000. (Note: You must provide us with a current Notice of Assessment from Revenue Canada in order to qualify for the lower fee.)
  • The EFA is an additional assessment not currently included in other RISE programs. The cost is in addition to other program fees.
