Academic Executive Functioning Coaching

Wolff Child Psychology specializes in providing comprehensive and effective solutions for students struggling with executive functioning skills. Our academic executive functioning coaching is designed to support students in 5th-12th grade and into the early college years who face challenges with planning, organization, and perseverance. These skills are fundamental to academic success but can be particularly difficult for some students to develop and apply effectively. Our coaching approach goes beyond basic tutoring by integrating psychologically informed strategies that are tailored to each student’s unique needs and challenges.

For students with learning and attention struggles such as ADHD, Dyslexia/Dysgraphia, and ASD, our coaching can be especially beneficial. These students often experience difficulties with organization, time management, and task completion, which can significantly impact their ability to demonstrate their full potential academically. Our coaching helps students integrate more effective executive functioning strategies into their daily lives, enabling them to navigate challenges with greater confidence and success.

Our coaches work closely with students, parents, and schools to develop individualized, attainable goals and provide concrete support to help students achieve them. Whether working in homes, schools, at our office, or virtually, our coaches are dedicated to helping students build the skills and confidence needed to succeed academically. We also provide substantial support with reading analysis/comprehension and writing, given the high demand on executive functioning these tasks require.

Our coaching approach incorporates collaboration with our licensed clinical psychologists, who regularly review progress and provide additional insights to ensure a comprehensive and effective experience. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to integrate recommendations from private and public school evaluation reports, including embedding 504/IEP accommodations and intervention goals into our coaching sessions. By combining the expertise of our coaches and psychologists, we provide students with the support they need to thrive academically and develop lifelong skills for success.

Social, Emotional and Behavioral Executive Functioning Coaching

Executive functioning skills play a crucial role in a child’s social, emotional, and behavioral development. We provide psychologically informed executive functioning coaching to support children from birth through the teenage years who may struggle in these areas. Our coaching approach recognizes that executive functioning skills are essential for adaptive daily functioning, extending beyond academic performance to influence personal, family, and social interactions. Children and teens with executive functioning challenges often find it difficult to use effective behavioral and emotional regulation strategies, impacting their ability to make sound choices and manage stressors in various settings.

Our coaching services aim to empower children, teens, and their families by teaching and practicing effective executive functioning strategies. This can be particularly beneficial for youth with significant social-emotional, attentional, and behavioral struggles, which may be associated with clinical diagnoses such as ADHD, ASD, depression, and anxiety. We understand that each child is unique, so our coaches work closely with parents, children, and teenagers to craft individualized and attainable goals. We provide concrete supports to help them successfully achieve these goals, whether through in-person sessions at our office, in homes, schools, or virtually.

For some children, our coaching may involve a heavier parent and teacher component to integrate strategies such as visual schedules, emotion regulation activities, and sensory breaks. For others, it may focus more on individual sessions with the child or teen to support anxiety and emotional coping strategies. Our coaches collaborate regularly with licensed clinical psychologists to ensure a multidisciplinary approach to coaching sessions. This collaboration allows us to integrate recommendations from private and public school evaluation reports, including embedding 504/IEP accommodations and intervention goals into our coaching sessions.

We believe that our social-emotional/behavioral executive functioning coaching can yield concrete, observable benefits for your child and family within a reasonable amount of time. By addressing the underlying executive functioning challenges, we aim to help children and teens improve their social interactions, emotional regulation, and behavioral responses, leading to enhanced overall well-being and success in various aspects of life.
