Executive Function Coaching for Adolescents

Executive Function Coaching helps adolescents improve their academic performance by learning executive function skills necessary to work more efficiently and effectively at school and at home. 


Some students have weaknesses in executive functions and, regardless of how bright they are, struggle to do schoolwork and stay on top of tasks as a result. Schoolwork can become a nightmare because they regularly lose homework assignments or start week-long assignments the night before they are due.

Some of the common signs of executive function difficulties are: 


Organizational issues: 

  • Frequently losing or forgetting important items

  • Being unable to maintain a clean room, desk, or locker


Time-management difficulties: 

  • Struggling with meeting deadlines for schoolwork

  • Struggling to be on time due to disorganization or poor planning

  • Difficulty moving from one task to the next in a timely manner

  • Struggling with getting ready in the morning or getting ready for bed


Poor academic achievement:

  • Difficulty memorizing facts, digesting important information, organizing thoughts in writing

  • Difficulty solving multi-step problems

  • Difficulty completing and handing in homework

  • Struggles with persistence and sustained attention


Executive Functioning Coaching can be helpful for individuals of all ages. Executive Functioning Coaching is found to be particularly helpful for individuals who are underachieving at school.


As an Executive Function Coach, Fleur supports individuals in becoming successful, independent learners who can make the daily and long-term decisions necessary to achieve important self-selected life goals. Examples of areas that Fleur may work on are:

  • Effective time-management skills

  • Effective study strategies

  • Strategies to manage distractions and improve focus, and sustained attention

  • Emotion regulation strategies


Executive Functioning Coaching is offered in-person or online. The frequency and length of sessions depend on the individual, and will be decided on collaboratively.
