Executive Function Challenges in Academic Reading

In this article, LCIRT's Lead Education Specialist, Linda Hecker M.Ed., examines the relationship between Executive Function (EF) and reading. She uses two metaphors, the "Orchestra Conductor" and the "CEO" to help us understand how the demands that reading places on the brain in the moment differ from the demands it places over the longer term.
