Ashland Executive Function Coaching

Ashland Executive Function Coaching

At Engaging Minds, we specialize in Ashland executive function coaching. Any cognitive control processes that are done within the brain fall under the title executive function. This includes organization, breaking down tasks into manageable steps, tracking daily tasks as well as long-term tasks, prioritization, task initiation, goal setting, and more. School-aged children use every one of these skills all the time. The executive function coaching available in Ashland is designed to build up these skills in your child.

The focus of the Ashland executive function coaching program at Engaging Minds is to teach students how to improve upon and use their executive function skills. We go beyond just tutoring your child for their academic assignments, and include education and practice in the abilities that will help them to continue to succeed across all school topics. The executive function skills that are natural for some students, present a real obstacle for others. Scientific research has provided evidence that often when a child is struggling in school, it has more to do with these obstacles than with lack of academic intelligence. The Ashland executive function coaching recognizes how important these skills are and works one-on-one with your child to strengthen and master them.

There is a range of tasks in the curriculum of Ashland executive function coaching. Depending on the strengths and weaknesses of your child, each Ashland executive function coaching trajectory will be slightly different and complexly individualized. Some of the tasks that are tackled by your child during Ashland executive function coaching include: organizing daily assignments and study materials, breaking down assignments into manageable parts, tracking daily work like homework as well as long-term work like tests, prioritizing among the various subjects in school and the assignments within each one, initiation of both short- and long-term tasks, interpretation of directions, preparation for exams, flexibility between details and bigger goals, information extraction, and goal development.
