Executive Function Coaching for Individuals

An Edge Coach specializes in providing individuals with the skills they need to overcome learning and attention challenges that can cause problems with school, family life, work and friendships.

The Edge Coach works as a partner with individuals to develop a plan to achieve goals they have identified. The coaching relationship empowers them by providing structure, support, and accountability. They own the goals and plans because these come from them, not from the coach.

What it is

How it Helps

The focused and personalized one-on-one approach used in Edge Coaching helps individuals with:

  • Goal setting

  • Prioritizing and time management
  • Focusing and perseverance, even in the face of adversity
  • Motivation and procrastination
  • Follow-through and task completion

Who Can Benefit

Edge executive function coaching can help young people in middle school, high school and college. It is also effective for adults entering the workplace, as well as older adults who may have struggled with learning and attention challenges such as ADHD because they were never diagnosed in childhood.

How to Get an Edge Coach

Our coach selection process has been designed to make sure each individual is paired with a coach that he or she is excited about and comfortable with. Here’s how it works.

STEP 1

Contact Us

To get an Edge Coach, all you do is contact us. For students under 18 years of age, parents will participate in all phases of the application process. For students 18 years and older, it is expected that the student take the initiative for selecting his or her own coach and that the parents take a supportive but secondary role.

STEP 2

Our Coach Matchmaker Goes to Work

Our coach matchmaker, based on our conversations with you and your parents, will identify which of our coaches is the best fit for you. You and the prospective coach talk with each other (if the student is under 18, both the parents and student will talk with the coach), and determine whether it is an appropriate fit..

STEP 3

Select Coach

Once you have decided on the right coach for you, the parent or the individual (if 18 years or older) and coach will sign a contract and commence coaching. Payment for services will be made directly to the Edge Foundation.

Additional Information

Made for the Times

Children with challenges such as ADHD are more impacted by the pandemic and distance learning than their peers. Learning loss, the lack of ability to self-manage with online learning, and falling behind are all possible. We have a proven virtual coaching method that can help your students succeed, even during a pandemic.
