Executive functions control how the brain communicates within itself and processes
information. These skills influence how we manage our daily academic and personal
lives and strongly impact success in these areas. As school-age children advance
in school, basic patterns of thought such as controlling impulses, flexibility,
planning, and organizing should develop and improve. If they don't, children can't
succeed. Children with learning disabilities, attention deficits (ADHD and ADD),
processing disorders and even average students suffer when assignments aren't completed
or turned in, books are lost and projects are turned in late. The following are the EIGHT areas we target: Attention, Focus Working Memory; Organization; Time Management and Planning; Task Analysis, Initiation and Completion; Self Assessment, Regulation, Monitoring and Coaching; Behavior and Response Inhibition; Social and Emotional Control; Academics and Study Skills.

Our goal is to provide students, parents and educators with the tools and information necessary to help students develop skills and achieve success.
We focus on identifying the underlying causes for concern, creating individualized plans, and implementing practical and concrete tools and strategies.
