What is Executive Function Coaching?

Executive function coaching is a focused approach aimed at children 10 and up. It enhances the ability to manage and organize their daily activities and responsibilities. It involves identifying personal strengths and areas for improvement, then developing strategies to boost skills in organization, time management, prioritization, and focus. Coaching also emphasizes the cultivation of self-assessment and efficient study or work habits, crucial for navigating the complexities of modern life filled with distractions and multiple demands.

This tailored coaching goes beyond homework help, focusing on equipping children with essential tools and strategies to enhance their organizational, time management, and planning abilities. By understanding and leveraging their unique cognitive processes, our approach aims to empower children to overcome obstacles and achieve academic and personal success, laying a solid foundation for lifelong learning and adaptation.

Coaching supports kids with ADHD, learning differences, and emotional challenges like anxiety, enhancing their organizational and management skills. Additionally, it helps children without formal diagnoses who seek to improve their handling of academic or professional demands, providing strategies for more effective living and working.

Still not sure EF Coaching can help your child?

The detailed feedback we got from each session was extremely helpful as was the final report. Our child received the support, guidance, strategies and tools needed from her coach. We loved the fact that homework was not an addition to what was already on our daughter's plate, but homework was rather in the form of implementing skills and strategies to help her with her existing school work.
We appreciate talking to Kristi before even getting started, she matched us with a coach that was a great fit for our son. The Discovery session was enlightening as we completed the EF Assessment and in collaboration we came up with a coaching plan for the next 10 sessions.

We have been impressed with the professionalism and personal support we have received from West Coast Centre for Learning. We were referred to West Coast Centre for Learning in Surrey for executive function coaching and it has been AWESOME!
