Executive Function


Executive function is a term that refers to brain-based processes that control and regulate our behaviour. Individuals with CdLS may have specific difficulties in executive functions. Usually, these difficulties affect individuals’ mental flexibility (ability to shift thoughts or attention) and visual short-term memory. 

However, some executive functions, such as inhibition (stopping a behavioural or verbal response) may be relative strengths in CdLS.
