What is Executive Function?
The term “executive function” refers to the cognitive control processes of the brain that impact all domains of behavior. Executive function skills allow us to organize information for learning, prioritize ideas or assignments, initiate tasks, set goals and develop plans for how to attain them, plan steps for problem- solving, shift flexibly between different ideas or tasks, hold and mentally manipulate information, and focus our attention. Our executive function coaches, also referred to as EF Coaches or neurodivergent coaches, will give your child or young adult the skills they need as the foundation of academic success.
Executive Functioning Skills Include:
- Organization of Materials
- Organization of Ideas for Writing, Reading, and Studying
- Planning and Time Management
- Task Initiation
- Flexible Thinking and Transitions
- Working Memory
- Self-Monitoring and Follow-Through
- Motivation and Self-Confidence
In addition to our classic one-on-one online executive function coaching online we also offer executive function-focused enrichment electives via EM Academy. EM Academy electives are designed to excite students, increase academic engagement, and provide additional rigor and enrichment executive functioning skills for those students that need it.
Reviews For Our Coaching & Tutoring Programs
“My son has worked on and off with Engaging Minds for many years (from late elementary through college) and I can’t say enough good things about the program. Dan, the owner, has always taken a lot of care matching my son with his instructors, making sure that they had experience with my son’s age group and needs. Over the years, my son has worked with several instructors and each one has been better than the last (if that’s even possible!) Engaging Minds has helped to improve my son’s executive functioning, reading comprehension and writing organization. It has given him renewed confidence in his skills, as well as the self-assurance to seek out help when he needs it. I would highly recommend Engaging Minds to other families without hesitation.” Rebecca R.
