Improves the 4 CORE Executive Function Skills


The ability to regulate emotions, language, body, and behavior in various environments.


The ability to motivate Self towards non-preferred tasks.


The ability to focus on yourself and how your actions, thoughts, or emotions align with your internal standards and how you present yourself to others.


The ability to learn from past experiences and apply them to the present.

What Is Executive Function and Why Is Everyone Talking About it?

Executive Function is a term used to describe a set of mental processes that helps us connect past experience with present action. We use the executive function when we perform such activities as planning, organizing, strategizing, and paying attention to or remembering details.

Executive Function affects all areas of an individual’s life – current thinking breaks executive functions skills down into three main areas of life; social, home, and academic.

Executive Functions are the foundation for ALL Learning. These crucial life skills focus on independence, positivity, resilience, and success.

There is no greater predictor of success in school, social relationships, jobs, and careers than Executive Function Skills.

These skills allow us to learn from past experiences (and not repeat mistakes) and forecast into the future so we can plan, prioritize, and problem solve – and be prepared for what’s to come.

When we do this – we can self-regulate our emotions and self-motivate toward new, challenging, and non-preferred tasks.

Independence. Positivity. Success. Dreams Achieved.

“… When I heard that Mike was doing work around executive functioning, I was quick to presume that he was doing what most people in the Philadelphia area who claim to work on executing functioning do – helping kids organize school materials. Organizing school materials is a small part of executive functioning, [but] it’s not addressing lagging executive function skills at their foundation.

When I first spoke with Mike I knew right away that he was the real deal and knew what he was doing. He was actually working on executive function skill development. I refer many families to GrowNOW ADHD.”

Michael definitely knows his stuff! As a mom of a neurodivergent child, and as a speech pathologist and as a neurodiverse person myself I can say with confidence that I highly recommend learning from him.

I'm a speech-language pathologist and I must say Grow Now's online resources are fantastic - lots of practical strategies to help build a child's executive functioning skills! I especially like the Tech Executive Function Grow Plan, super helpful.
Graciela Valverde
Mr. McLeod takes the latest research and applies it in a very meaningful and life changing way. The help he is able to provide is beyond measure!
Meredith Fields
Tina was such a great resource for our son Rhys who needed some speech help. Rhys loves going to speech and we've seen tons of improvement over just a few sessions. If he needs some more help, we know where to go!
Erin Gallegos
Grow Now's resources are fantastic - I am finding them useful both as a parent but as an elementary school teacher. Pushing me to think about how critical executive functioning is in day to day living.
Stacey Sturm
The Tech Executive Function Grow plan is outstanding. I have tried modeling good tech and other healthy behaviors while also trying to implement a less restrictive plan and everything failed. GrowNOW's plan is specific and meets the needs of my 9, 11, and 13 year olds while also giving amazing explanations to parents. It's time to end the dependency on screen times and this is just the tool needed to motivate parents and take back control of the household.
