Exploring the Relationships Among Executive Functioning, Behaviour, and Adaptive Skills in Young Children
This study aimed to investigate the relationship between executive functioning, adaptive skills, and behaviour problems in young children. Participants were divided into four behaviour groups (high internalizing, high externalizing, combined high internalizing and externalizing, and within the normal range). The predictive ability of inhibition, shift, working memory, adaptive skills, age, and gender on group membership were explored. Both variable and person oriented perspectives were examined.
