Overall, the data suggest that the executive attention network appears to develop under strong genetic control, but that it is subject to educational interventions during development.
The Development of Executive Attention: Contributions to the Emergence of Self-Regulation
This article focuses on the monitoring and control functions of attention and discusses its contributions to self-regulation from cognitive, temperamental, and biological perspectives.
Developing mechanisms of temperamental effortful control.
Children's performance on the eye-movement task was correlated with performance and reaction time on spatial tasks, and both were related to aspects of effortful control and negative affect as measured in children's parent-reported temperament.
Development of the time course for processing conflict: an event-related potentials study with 4 year olds and adults
Differences in the amplitude and time course of event-related potentials (ERPs) between children and adults that are consistent with their differences in reaction time constitute neural correlates of children's greater difficulty in monitoring and resolving conflict in this and similar tasks.
Effortful control, executive attention, and emotional regulation in 7–10-year-old children

A shift in control is suggested from the brain’s orienting network in infancy to the executive network by the age of 3—4 years, which rests in a frontal brain network that involves the anterior cingulate gyrus.
