    Default Executive Function Disorder

    Does anyone know much about this? The forgot to add in the other post that the dev. psych thinks Jacob may have this although I guess it can't be diagnosed this young like ADHD which she said couldn't be ruled out either.

    My understanding about Executive Function Disorder is it's been pretty interchangeable with ADD.

    Default its hard to really tell until they get older, more

    it became very evident that my dss had EFD by the time he was in 3rd grade. he struggles with streaming 3 or more things/tasks together especially in reading/writing/project assignments. it was more than just the normal adhd stuff (his dx at that time). as his neuro put it, he has trouble connecting the dots in complex assignments.

    language arts is typically the hardest subject for those with EFD b/c of all the concentration, tasks, organization and follow thru steps involved to write a story/paper/etc. hugs
