Supporting Development of Executive Function Skills
Sure, ChoreMonster makes chores fun for parents and kids, but as a healthcare professional, you know that something much more important is going on when children learn to organize themselves and complete tasks. ChoreMonster is an effective tool to support children in developing executive function skills.
In addition to helping all children develop executive function skills, ChoreMonster provides a fun and beneficial addition to a behavior therapy program for children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other executive function weaknesses. It supports the recent research and guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association pointing to the long-term benefits of behavior therapy in treating children diagnosed with ADHD.
Executive Function Skills
As a pediatric neuropsychologist, I work with children and their families on a daily basis. A consistent finding observed in many of my clients is a weakness in executive functioning, limiting a child's ability to organize their environment, start tasks, or plan appropriately to complete future goals. I have found that ChoreMonster provides an entertaining and motivating experience which helps to structure a child's environment resulting in improved task completion. My parents love ChoreMonster as well because they no longer have to chase after their kids to get their work done.
