Executive Function is a Key Predictor of Life Success
We’re the organization with the most experience and verified success in coaching people with ADHD and other learning challenges to optimize their potential, increase self-esteem, and give them an edge in life.
Edge Coaching Programs
We’ve proven executive function coaching can work virtually and we’ve been successfully providing that coaching online since 2005. We use remote-based coaches and trainers to conduct both virtual coaching sessions and virtual coaching trainings.
Our programs include one-on-one coaching for individuals, schools and community-based organizations. There is a coaching model that works for you.
An Edge coach specializes in helping individuals to develop and implement the executive function skills one needs to thrive in school, family life, work and friendships.
In partnership with schools around the country, Edge trains school staff to be Edge In-School Coaches. Staff are selected by school leadership to provide one-on-one, weekly coaching sessions to at-risk youth.
Young people who are homeless, in foster care or in juvenile justice systems face special challenges. Edge provides these youth with individual coaches to develop the skills they need to solve everyday problems.
