Hass, Michael R.; Patterson, Ashlea; Sukraw, Jocelyn; Sullivan, Brianna M.

Despite the common usage of the term "executive functioning" in neuropsychology, several aspects of this concept remain unsettled. In this paper, we will address some of the issues surrounding the notion of executive functioning and how an understanding of executive functioning and its components might assist school-based practitioners to better understand children and their difficulties in being successful in school. Specifically, we will review current definitions of executive functioning and discuss the strengths and limitations of different approaches to the assessment of executive functioning for school-based practitioners.
