LDA’s Executive Function Skill Building sessions are for those with executive function challenges, including ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, and other learning differences.
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 tutors work on students with 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 empower young people to:

- 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 time together, including goals for utilizing their new skills within their current academic setting.
LDA has a popular Executive Function Skill Building 6-hour Course with a cohort of middle or high school peers grades 6-8 or 9-12. Youth receive additional time and instruction in a small group of 2-3 of their peers with similar challenges.

*We are scheduling our May sessions online under the assumption that the Stay Home Order will still be active. If we hear that the Stay Home order is lifted AND it is safe for us to offer the course in person, our program supervisor will be reaching out to families. We would offer the class in-person on Saturday mornings at LDA Minnesota. There will be four in-person sessions (5/9, 5/16, 5/23, and 5/30). Each session will be 90-minutes in length.
Our team will be providing instruction using research-based strategies and will customize these skills for each youth participant.
Price: $340 for 6 hours of service (6 sessions)
