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.
