Executive Skills Coaching

Executive skills are the thinking processes that are required in order to plan and organize activities, including getting started on tasks, sustaining attention and following through. (Just to name a few.) As tweens and teens begin to resist instruction from their parents in learning new skills, coaching is an option many parents turn to. Executive skills coaching serves as a way station between kids relying on being managed by their parents and being able to function independently. It is an approach that is well-suited to helping teens grow the executive skills they need in order to become the independent, self-sufficient individuals that they can become.

Academic Support

For most children, academic skills take practice – and lots of it! Through regular practice, children can both maintain their skill levels, and continue to build new skills that allow them to achieve higher learning, as well as experience greater success in school. In today’s busy world, it can be hard to find the time at home for regular practice of academic skills, with many children pushing back when it’s time to get down to schoolwork. Many parents choose to seek outside support in scheduling and completing this practice, in order to keep skills strong and avoid meltdowns at home. Academic support may include skills in reading fluency and comprehension, writing skills and/or math calculations and problem solving.

Academic Skills Intervention

For some children, academic learning and school functioning is more challenging than it is for others. Many of these children have undergone comprehensive evaluations that have revealed the various factors that are affecting the child’s learning. The single most important factor in planning for a child with a behavioural problem or learning disability is a comprehensive evaluation of deficits and assets that informs evidence-based instruction. In other words, a successful academic skills intervention program is one that works for the child, by providing systematic instruction that includes a variety of reliable strategies, keeps individual learning needs in mind, and focuses on a student’s strengths as a learner.
