Executive Function Coaching

Elementary and Middle School

Executive Function Coaching

Private setting that empowers your child to cultivate a focused academic mindset and organizational skill set where they feel successful, confident, and happier.

Executive function coaching is for kids who:

  • Feel stressed, overwhelmed, or unhappy with schoolwork.
  • Struggle with time management, organizational, and planning skills.
  • Fail to turn in assignments and/or study properly for an assessment.
  • Understand the content taught, but feel like the traditional structures of school don’t work for them.

Executive function coaching will help your child to:

  • Create habits and systems to manage their academic and social/emotional workload.
  • Build time management skills through prioritizing, forward and backward planning, and check-lists.
  • Improve self-advocacy and problems solving skills. Coaching works if your child also wants to see a change.
  • Break down tasks into manageable steps.

More Information

Conscious Connections

This program is for families looking to make a meaningful academic connection with their child throughout the week. Conscious Connections is a resource I create for families who want to reinforce the same skills their child is learning during our sessions. A child’s developing brain thrives on routine and consistency. As neurological pathways are forming with a new skill, it is essential that caregivers use consistent, meaningful language to help solidify these newly acquired skills.

Conscious Connections Overview:

  • customizable, at-home activities
  • 10-20 minute games that promote reading, writing, and math
  • instructional videos and guides
  • self-paced learning with a goal of 2-3 activities per week

Conscious Connections can be an add-on to tutoring or a stand-alone experience. The program includes access to all instructional videos and guides. After meeting with a family, I recommend a few materials that can be purchased to accompany the games and activities. These are my tried and true, multi-sensory materials that I use during my sessions. Each resource, such as a math tile game or a phonics puzzle, is tailored specifically to your child’s developing mind.

Preparation Time

In addition to my individualize plan and hourly session with a child, I communicate with parents, school, doctors, and other support team members. I often assist in completing school or doctor referral forms and questionnaires. All my instruction is designed to follow what your child is learning in school. I encourage families to share newsletters, homework, and learning evaluations.
