Executive Function MENTORING
Over the last 20 years, there has been a tremendous amount of research devoted to the cognitive abilities required for school success. These innate abilities are called executive functions, and they control a person’s capacity to stay focused, plan, strategize, and recall information. Some students come by these skills naturally, while others need more support
Executive Function Mentors can provide the tools necessary to help students succeed. Executive Functioning Coaches teach students the skills necessary to analyze, plan, organize, schedule, and complete long-term assignments effectively. Additionally, they customize study strategies based on individual learning styles.
Performance Prep has taken numerous workshops, webinars, and graduate classes in Executive Function to help students learn and apply specific study skills and strategies in their every day lives. Owner, Eileen Sullivan Studdert first began the process of becoming an Executive Functioning Coach when her son, now a college student, was identified with Executive Functioning Deficits in elementary school.
