"My son, 14, has executive function skill deficits.  He was lucky enough to meet Gail during his middle school years.  With her help, through organization, breaking down projects, and great communication with our family, he made significant progress learning to get organized, remembering to do his work, and handing in his projects in a more timely manner.  We are grateful for her help!"


​"Gail was fantastic with our son!  She took the time to get to know his learning style and helped him recognize how he could change his methods to work within that style."

WHAT IS ORGANIZATIONAL COACHING FOR STUDENTS? 

 

Organizational coaching is an intervention strategy that can help students of all ages improve the executive functioning skills critical to life success. The goal is to teach new behaviors and habits based on the assessed skill deficits and goals of the individual. The coaching process lends itself to fit the needs of a variety of populations, students and adults.

 

After initial assessments and goal setting, an array of strategies are introduced and monitored on a daily and weekly basis. New behaviors and habits are reinforced with regular feedback and encouragement.  Optimally, the coaching process fades as new practices are incorporated and internalized.


The goal is to give underperforming students the tools to regulate and manage their own lives and achieve their full academic and life potential.
