Executive Function Skill Building

LDA's Executive Function Skill Building sessions are for those with executive function deficits, ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, and other learning challenges.

The sessions help students build the skills necessary to be successful and independent learners in middle school, high school and post-secondary education. Some of the skills our coaches work on with students include:

  • Organizing materials such as notebooks, folders, assignments, personal planners
  • Organizing information such as note-taking and summarizing
  • Study skills, with practice applied to current assignments and curriculum
  • Time management including task analysis

Benefits of LDA's Executive Function Skill Building:

Our program empowers young adults to:

  • Improve organization and time management skills
  • Learn to prioritize
  • Develop independence
  • Discover and maximize their strengths
  • Learn important self-advocacy skills
  • Increase confidence

Parents will benefit by:

  • Removing themselves from the "nagging" role
  • Taking homework and time management issues out of their relationship with their child
  • Empowering their child to take on greater responsibility

Our team of Special Educators and ADHD experts will help each student by developing specific goals for their coaching sessions, including goals for utilizing their new skills within their current academic setting.
