ABSTRACT

This study looks into the executive function of children with learning disorder from three perspectives through documentary study. First, historical aspect was dealt with by looking at studies related with the frontal lobe that is the basis for the study on executive function second, academic approach on the executive function of children with learning disorder was briefly looked at from neuropsychological aspect; and lastly, the purpose of this study was laid on seeking appropriate learning strategy according to the executive function of children with learning disorder. According to the result of the study, the early neuropsychologists studied executive function in relation with the frontal lobe. As a result, it was found that the prefrontal lobe which is at the very front of the frontal lobe is an important part of the cerebral cortex which is in charge of executive function. Moreover, it was found that executive function is a necessary cognitive capability that should be measured from the aspect of neuropsychology that deals with the relationship between the brain and behavior, and between the brain and intellectual capacity. This identified the fact that executive function is an important variable that influences the learning ability and behavior of children. This called for the need of establishing an effective learning strategy that considers the characteristics of executive function of children with learning disorder; and various strategies have been researched.
