Executive Functioning Skills in Standardized Testing

Students with ADHD and executive functioning weaknesses tend to experience academics and testing differently than those without learning disabilities. It is important to remember that these challenges are not a sign of incompetence, nor are they suggestive of a student’s intelligence. What these challenges do suggest is that these students learn differently and require specific structures to perform well in school. This is true not only for achieving high grades, but high scores on standardized tests as well.
To effectively prepare for the SAT, students should seek to strengthen their executive functioning skills while simultaneously reviewing content.
