“Executive Function Disorder” exposes an Education Dysfunction Disorder

We all need an Executive Function Coach, but not because we have a disorder. We need an Executive Function Coach because facing the challenges of life competently requires us to continue to develop our decision-making repertoire. Everyone is working on one or more executive functioning skills. But no tutor can teach them. Teaching is not the delivery system for these skills; coaching is.

Managing Executive Functioning Challenges

Executive functions refer to cognitive processes that are necessary for the cognitive control of behavior to successfully attain chosen goals. We all use these executive functions to plan, organize and complete tasks. Problems with executive functioning can be seen at any age but tend to be increasingly apparent as children move through the early elementary grades. The demands of completing schoolwork can often trigger signs that there are difficulties in this area.
