Executive Function Coaching
Have you ever thought to yourself, “If only I had a personal assistant to help me remember things, I could do so much better”? You have trouble remembering simple, everyday things like what your work schedule is, when your deadlines are at school, etc. Those elements of your day are controlled by your executive functions. By training your brain and strengthening your natural abilities, you can navigate seemingly difficult tasks with ease.
CNLD Testing & Therapy offers Executive Function Coaching, along with educational advocacy, therapy, psychological testing and neuropsychological testing. If you’re interested in improving your executive functions, contact us at (734) 994-9466 to get started.
What Is Executive Function Coaching?
Executive Function Coaching, sometimes referred to as ADHD Coaching, can provide help in many different areas, not just memory. Coaching can aid with:
- Planning and Organizing
- Goal Setting and Implementation
- Strategic Thinking
- Study Skills
- Test-taking Strategies
- Memory Strategies
- Time Management
- Self-Awareness (Motivation, Emotional Awareness)
Think of your brain as a band or orchestra for a moment. There are many people to coordinate in order to play a piece of music the way the composer wrote it. Whose job is it to keep everything functioning smoothly and correctly? The conductor’s. Your executive functions are the conductors in your mind, ensuring that all of the moving parts coordinate with one another. CNLD Testing & Therapy offers Executive Function Coaching to help develop and train the “conductor” of your mind.
