Parent Package- $90/30 minutes
30 minute meetings with parents of all ages of students or non-students addressing a specific executive function. We can determine what EF skill should be addressed for the most impact and create a plan for parents to implement. This parent/guardian meeting is for 1 meeting, though we can schedule subsequent meetings if desired.
High School Seniors
Parents and the student should initiate contact for coaching. It is crucial that the student want EF coaching at this stage before college or life after high school. Planning, time management, study skills and consistency are stressed for this age group. Meetings are weekly through the semester. Parents will receive regular updates on their student's progress.
College Students (Undergrads and Graduate Students)
As college students begin their lives as adults, the student should initiate contact. Parents can also be on the call, but students 18+ will need to be the ones to invest their effort in strengthening their EF (maturation to adulthood) skills in this first step. Meetings are weekly throughout the semester. Parents will receive regular updates on their student's progress.
Adult clients are those seeking to work on one or multiple executive function skills that they feel will benefit work or personal life issues. I have worked with a number of adults diagnosed with ADHD later in life who are very motivated to implement some tools!
I am not a therapist, so the work is on tangible and actionable EF skills you can put into practice right away!
General Areas Addressed:
- better study and learning strategies for retention
- reducing procrastination
- managing time, using calendars
- increasing homework completion
- promoting self-care and self-advocacy
**Our first 1-2 sessions will be assessing the client's needs, reviewing the monthly plan or semester's schedule of classes and syllabi to map out their academic plan.
Student Regular Session Agendas:
Check in with the clients to see what's on their mind and recent events. Check grades and status of homework.
Look over the past week to see what tasks the student accomplished, what worked for them, how we can work together to modify things that got in the way of completion.
Review assignments with the coach to set up the most important tasks we want to tackle in this meeting. Tests? Projects? Scheduling multiple homework?
Depending on the priority of the week, we will look at those assignments using executive function skills (listed above) and tools as a framework to completion.
At the end of the meeting, the coach and student determine the Action Plan for the week. I will check in with the student via email or text to see how the plan is working.
