*AD/HD *Organization *Time Management
*Test Taking & Study Skills *Long Term Project Planning
*Executive Function Skills *Motivation
*Frustration Tolerance *Confidence *Self Advocacy
How It Works:
After contacting me and receiving the information/application packet, an initial consultation meeting is scheduled, requiring attendance of both student and parent(s). At this meeting, I cover general guidelines and expectations of the coaching experience, along with answering any questions and/or concerns regarding the informational material provided. Payment for the initial consultation is due at this meeting.
The next step: The student and I schedule the weekly coaching sessions, all of which occur at my home-office in Fairfax.
All coaching sessions are approximately 40-55 min. in length. Session time will include:
• Reviewing student's previous week's assignments
• Assessing progress of quarter goals and adjust as needed
• Going over test/quiz results
• Scheduling, planning and writing down upcoming assignments, projects and tests in student's planner/agenda
•Sorting, organizing and reviewing student binders and folders each week
As the coaching process is not a ‘quick fix,’ students and parent(s) are expected to work with me for a minimum of three months or one school quarter. On average, most students choose to work with me for the entire school year. I meet with each student individually on a weekly basis. Students are required to be in contact with me in between sessions via email or text. Communication throughout the coaching process is VITAL!
