Psychology 360 offers executive functioning coaching to the student population. These sessions involve assessing current executive functioning skills, identifying weaknesses, and then supporting these areas with practical strategies and techniques.
Executive functioning refers to a set of cognitive skills that are necessary for:
- Planning: Creating a plan of action for the future
- Organization: Arranging information systematically
- Time Management: Estimating and allocating time for tasks
- Working Memory: Retaining information
- Metacognition: Awareness of one’s thought process
Deficits in executive functioning are common in individuals with ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, and depression. Such deficits can impact school performance, employment, and relationships.
