Making executive functioning about having more time to yourself, not grades or academics.

Working with a 14 year old on re-sequencing his steps to getting ready in the morning so he has more time to himself and gets out the door on time.

From what I’ve heard – most executive function coaches focus on academics, without taking into consideration that not every kid is motivated by grades. I take the approach of teaching kids that if they use what I’m teaching them they can have more time to themselves and have their parents nagging them less.
