Executive Function Coaching

Executive Function Coaching
For nearly two decades, Damon Korb, MD, the director of Center for Developing Minds, has been passionate about helping to identify weaknesses in a child’s executive functioning and providing solutions for improving their skills. While parents can find loads of advice on this subject in his book, Raising an Organized Child, for some students it is helpful to work directly with an outside instructor.
CDM educational specialists have years of training helping students boost their executive function skills. This may become especially important as your child enters middle- or high-school, where the increased demands may finally overwhelm their abilities.
Some of the strategies and skills that can be addressed with one-on-one training at the CDM include:
  • Planning ahead
  • Locating possessions
  • Taking others perspective
  • Better time-management skills
  • Becoming more organized
  • Flexible thinking
  • Grasping the big picture
  • Creating homework management routines
  • Transitioning from one task to the next
  • Communicating effectively
  • Practice sustaining attention
  • Creating daily lists and agendas
  • Not getting “stuck”
  • Regulating emotions
  • Better note-taking
