Cognitive/Executive Function
Coaching

What are Cognitive or Executive Function Skills?

Executive Function skills can be described as the CEO of our brain. It is responsible for planning, executing, and carrying out a person’s daily tasks and responsibilities. Many of us, regardless of diagnosis, struggle with this. Perhaps you often feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, have an endless todo list, get distracted easily, or have a hard time finishing what you started.

 

We offer cognitive coaching for high school and college students, and young adults, helping build skills to navigate and manage day-to-day life at home, at school or college or in social settings.

Symptoms of Executive Function Difficulties may include:

  • trouble controlling emotions or impulses

  • problems with starting, organizing, planning, or completing tasks

  • trouble listening or paying attention

  • short-term memory issues

  • inability to multitask or balance tasks

  • socially inappropriate behavior

  • inability to learn from past consequences

  • difficulty solving problems

Problems with executive function may lead to:

  • poor performance at work or school

  • problems forming or maintaining relationships
