Executive Function Coaching

Executive Function (EF) Coaching will help you develop self-regulation and skills in organizing, planning, and prioritizing to flourish at school, work, and in daily life.

Our EF Coaches support you, or your child, to gain awareness of personal strengths and challenges with executive function and develop skills and strategies that are customized to your specific needs.

Executive Functions (EF) are a set of cognitive skills used to:

  • self-regulate
  • plan, prioritize, and organize,
  • self-monitor and maintain attention
  • manage time
  • make a multitude of daily decisions

Challenges with EF can make it difficult to sustain focus, follow directions, reflect on performance, and learn. Difficulties with executive functions ultimately can get in the way of reaching goals. Learning specific EF strategies are beneficial to fully access potential at school, work, or other areas of life.

At FAx, we recognize that there are many learning differences that can be attendant with dyslexia. Research shows that one common correlation is with executive functioning. This means that many people with language-based learning differences also have difficulties with central executive functioning. These difficulties can create challenges in planning, prioritizing and organizing concepts and materials, and managing use of time effectively. EF Coaching helps strengthen executive function skills, reduces anxiety, and helps develop a sense of satisfaction in daily life.

Our EF Coaches work with people of all ages, to include anyone who needs support in managing their daily lives in a more productive, efficient manner.

EF Coaching is suitable for:

  • Elementary and high school students
  • Post-secondary students
  • Adults
  • Parents of children with learning differences

Due to the brain’s neuroplasticity, individuals of any age can build new neuropathways when learning novel ways of thinking, feeling and doing. EF coaching can help “change the brain.”

  3. Insist that the workspace be a phone-free zone and turn off notifications
  4. Post a family calendar of weekly activities to help students see where they have time to do homework
  5. Encourage frequent screen-free brain and/or body breaks
  6. Provide water and a snack – brains need maintenance!
