When someone exhibits a pattern of chronic difficulties in executing daily duties, staying on task or organizing their world, this may be the result of an Executive Function Disorder (EFD). Take one of these executive dysfunction questionnaires to see if you or your child might have an executive dysfunction disorder.
If you want to analyze specific executive functioning strengths and weaknesses, download this executive dysfunction test developed by Peg Dawson and Richard Guare. It will summarize each executive function category addressed in this questionnaire. Please note that this executive dysfunction test is not intended to provide a diagnosis – rather, it should be used as a tool for developing self-awareness of strengths and weaknesses, highlighting the things we are naturally good at and the areas we may need to improve. This reflective process of analyzing strengths and weaknesses is empowering, as it allows students and adults to take an honest inventory of why certain things about life are harder, while others are easier. It also empowers us to take action, with a stronger sense of agency, in developing the skills to improve the outcomes in life.
