Executive Function Coaching for Individuals
An Edge Coach specializes in helping individuals develop and implement the executive function skills to succeed in school, home, work and friendships.
How Edge Coaching Works
The Edge Coach works as a partner with people to develop a plan to achieve goals they have identified. The coaching relationship empowers them by providing structure, support, and accountability. The clients own the goals and plans because these come from them, not from the coach.
How Edge Coaching Helps
The focused and personalized one-on-one approach used in Edge Coaching helps individuals with:
- Goal setting
- Planning and organizing
- Prioritizing and time management
- Focusing and perseverance, even in the face of adversity
- Impulse control
- Motivation and procrastination
- Follow-through and task completion
How We Match You With a Coach
Our coach matchmaker, based on our conversations with you, identifies three coaches aligned with your preferences. You and the prospective coach talk with each other and determine whether it is a good match. There are no fees for the coach match process.
Who Are Edge Coaches Are
Our Edge coaches are International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified and are specifically trained in working with neurodiverse individuals. In addition, they must have at least 2 years prior experience coaching and have coached at least 10 ADHD clients before coming to Edge.

Edge Coaching is effective for adults entering the workplace, as well seasoned adults who may have struggled with learning and attention challenges and want to improve their effectiveness.
Parents of Complex Kids
Raising a child with learning and attention challenges can be demanding. Edge Coaching helps parents understand the difficulties their child faces and provides help with theses issues.
How to Get an Edge Coach
Our coach selection process has been designed to make sure you are paired with a coach that you are excited about and comfortable with. Here’s how it works.
To get an Edge Coach, all you do is contact us. If you are under 18 years of age, your parents will participate in all phases of the application process. If you are 18 years and older, it is expected that you take the initiative for selecting your own coach and that your parents take a supportive but secondary role.
Our Coach Matchmaker Goes to Work
Our coach matchmaker, based on our conversations with you and your parents / financial guarantor, will identify three coaches based on your preferences. You and the prospective coach talk with each other (if you are under 18, both you and your parent / financial guarantor will talk with the coach), and determine whether it is a good match.
Once you have decided on the right coach, your parent / financial guarantor and you (if 18 years or older) and the coach will sign a month-to-month contract and commence coaching. Payment for services will be made directly to the Edge Foundation.
