High School
Executive Function Support

Create successful and productive habits at school & at home

If your high school student can benefit from targeted
executive functioning skill building, let's talk.

HELP YOUR STUDENT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF TIME, FIND TOOLS TO SUPPORT ORGANIZATION AND PLANNING & CREATE HABITS THAT WILL LEAD TO SUCCESS AT HOME AND AT SCHOOL. 

Anyone can struggle with executive functioning skills - even those without a diagnosed disability.

Executive functioning weaknesses can occur alongside other diagnoses such as: Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia and other conditions.

EF struggles can look like:

  • Messy or disorganized backpack, bedroom, or desk 

  • Completing homework but forgetting to turn it in

  • Waiting until the last minute to start a task and then feeling overwhelmed 

  • Have difficulty breaking down large assignments into smaller steps

  • Struggles paying attention and remembering details

  • Difficulty with writing production

If these statements sound familiar, you are not alone and you are in the right place! 

What Does High School Coaching Look Like?

  • Supporting students who are academically capable but struggle with some level of executive functioning weakness.

  • Focus on holistic success (beyond academics) and apply EF skills to structure daily schedules, managing their class schedule and responsibilities & improving their ability to advocate for their needs and wants. 

  • Identify strategies and tools to get students on track academically, continue academic success or develop systems to help students reach short-term or long-term academic goals.

Strategies used include:
  • Reflection and evaluation of past decisions and outcomes in order to identify strengths and weakness

  • Learning and identifying study skills and test preparation that match the student's learning style

  • Providing strategies to help students independently regulate and manage their free time

  • Setting short-term and long-term goals then identifying steps needed to accomplish these goals

  • Supporting students in developing self-advocacy and communication skills to talk with professors, teachers, school counselors, and disability office staff

  • Organizing class syllabi to set a plan for completing assignments
