Executive Function Coaching

Executive Function coaching addresses academic performance and study skills, but the focus of the work is on organizational skills. Our Executive Function mentorships combine an inquiry-based therapeutic approach with practical skill development and strategy instruction. The short-term to long-term model begins with the creation of external supports, systems and tools to lighten the load on your child’s executive system. Mentors collaborate with students to develop goals, establish organizational systems, and then practice and model those systems to help your child internalize habits and routines until they become automatic. By working with each student to set and define goals and modeling effective executive functioning, mentors build up students’ self-esteem and strengthen their internal supervision skills.

What We Tackle

  • Difficulty initiating tasks or activities and generating a course of action
  • Difficulty planning and organizing longer projects or complex tasks
  • Disorganization of space and materials
  • Poor time management skills
  • Rigidity or struggle moving from one task or assignment to another
  • Difficulty sustaining or shifting focus
  • Poor self-monitoring on progress or performance and inability to review work

What You’ll See

  • Heightened focus

The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed — it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.
