Executive Functions





The task

This task requires your client to catch words before they fall to the ground and file them in the correct drawer. Each drawer is devoted to a specific category. When your client cannot see the filing categories in advance, they need to use trial and error and their working memory to identify and remember the category labels of the filing drawers.


What It Trains

This exercise primarily targets concentration, working memory, and executive functioning skills. These cognitive skills are heavily used when we are problem solving. Because your client must use some degree of trial and error, they must remember which attempts were successful as well as which ones were not. They must then devise strategies that help them remember the category of each drawer and what words correspond to each category. We use these skills when we have to organize items in our home in a way that makes them accessible to us and presentable.


You can modify the number of files (2, 3, 4, 5, or 6), the type of file (visible or hidden categories), and the speed of word (none, very slow, slow, normal, fast, or very fast).
