Occupational Therapy -> Executive Function -> Impulse Control
Impulse control is a skill used to resist or control urges, desires, etc. Impulse control is an important skill beginning in early childhood. For example, a child is taught to resist the urge to take a toy from a peer, hit when upset, or run across the street when the ball rolled away. Adults use impulse control to maintain a healthy diet, stay calm when upset or frustrated at work, buy an expensive item at the store, etc. Impulse control is addressed by occupational therapists to maintain safety, positive social relationships, and succeed in daily occupations.
