Tongue-tie and executive functioning

Tongue-tie and executive functioning

Executive functioning refers to a set of cognitive skills that are involved in planning, organizing, initiating, and completing tasks.

 These skills are important for managing time, prioritizing tasks, and adapting to changing circumstances.

There is some evidence to suggest that tongue-tie may be associated with difficulties in executive functioning. 

For example, a study of children with tongue-tie found that they had significantly lower scores on measures of executive functioning compared to children without tongue-tie.

However, it is important to note that tongue-tie and executive functioning are two separate issues, and more research is needed to understand the nature of this relationship.

 If you or a loved one is experiencing difficulties with executive functioning or has been diagnosed with tongue-tie, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and treatment.
