TimeWise Executive Function Coaching

Contact Name Annika Ahlstrom

Executive functions are the cognitive skills that are needed for planning, organization and time management, vital for success in school and in life. I have worked with many students who struggle in school and in life due to executive functioning weaknesses. Without support for these challenges, this struggle often leads to lowered self-esteem for the child and frustration in the home. I work using the Seeing My Time® program developed by Marydee Sklar and have found it extremely effective with students at the middle, high school and college levels. My approach in working with each student is to find and build upon his or her individual strengths. At the same time, we examine student challenges to create a program of tools and strategies that supports the unique learning style of each child. Sessions are with students and their parents to help ensure that this support is linked between home and school. Change happens over time with consistency, reflection and positive reinforcement.
