The Beyond BookSmart Approach Works
Guare and Dawson (Smart But Scattered), Russell Barkley (considered America’s foremost expert on ADHD), and numerous others have made coaching the number one recommendation for supporting students with Executive Function challenges. For some students, the first course of action may be medication, but that alone does not guarantee success. Students need to be taught strategies and to then practice those strategies until they become habits.
Our approach works. We apply research-based methodology in our coaching. Our students' school performance improves and top clinicians and educators readily speak to our success. School professionals, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, and networking groups consistently recommend us. Most significantly, our parents express consistent satisfaction with the improvements they see.

Longitudinal Study Underway
To further evidence our results, Beyond BookSmart is currently conducting an ongoing nationwide research study on the efficacy of Executive Function interventions through individualized coaching. This research study uses the BRIEF-2 (Brief Rating Inventory of Executive Function which is often used in neuropsychological assessments) as a tool for assessing improvement over time in Executive Function skills for students ages 11-18 receiving our coaching.
