Executive functioning skills play a vital role in every student's life. We can work on each skill separately to hone in on areas that each student needs. Emotional control is one skill that many students need assistance with throughout their life.
"Soda Pop Head" by Julia Cook is a fantastic read to explore how to react in a situation where one may "blow their top" or "lose their fizz".
