Affects planning, organization, strategizing, attention to detail, and managing time and space.

An inefficiency in the cognitive management systems of the brain affects a variety of neuropsychological processes such as planning, organization, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space. Although not a learning disability, different patterns of weakness in executive functioning are almost always seen in the learning profiles of individuals who have specific learning disabilities or ADHD.
