Preschool program to boost executive function leads to success in primary grades

from NIH

A program to teach preschoolers pre-reading, social, and thinking skills appears to have benefits through third grade, particularly in executive functioning — the mental skills that include planning, paying attention, organizing, and remembering details, according to a study funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The researchers found that children who had poor executive functioning skills when they started the program benefited the most, ultimately testing higher in executive functioning in kindergarten, first, second, and third grade, compared to a group of children with poor executive functioning skills who didn't take part in the program. more
