Activities to improve executive functions

As we promised, today we are sharing some activities to improve executive functions.

Activities to improve executive functions:

     1. Bottle Caps

In this exercise, clients have to arrange the moving bottle caps in ascending order. By practicing this activity, they train three executive functions in particular: working memory, inhibition, and hemineglect. Sustained attention is also trained.

This cognitive rehabilitation activity to improve executive functions is also available for children under the name “The Little Glutton“, a game in which children have to eat all the cookies, though of course, in strict numerical sequence.

We have connected several concepts:

  1. Profession-trade-employment
  2. Trimester-semester-millennium
  3. Herbivore-omnivore-carnivore

Can your clients match all the missing concepts?

3. Mixed Images

In this activity specifically designed for children, kids must move the squares in an orderly manner until creating the desired image. This is a task to train planning, as well as other cognitive functions such as visuospatial skills and spatial relations.
