We have answers

What if my student doesn't want a coach?

Do you take insurance?

Unfortunately, insurance does not cover coaching expenses at this time as coaching is classified as academic support instead of medical treatment.  Many HSA/Flex spending accounts do have coaching as a qualifying expense.  Contact your benefits provider for more information.

How long do I need a coach for?

How long do I need a coach for?

There’s typically a critical time at the start of coaching, around 3 to 5 months, to get back on track. Many students find that they really like the support and accountability. Over time, students increase their skills. Therefore, they can choose a lighter coaching program as they improve.

What if my student doesn't want a coach?

What if my student doesn't want a coach?

Students are typically resistant to what they don’t know, especially when they are already shutting down as a defense mechanism. In our experience, as soon as they make a connection with their coach and can vent outside of the parental unit, they tend to open up to the engagement. Over time, they gain confidence as they start to see the path the coach is leading them on. However, if a student isn’t going to engage with a coach, we will give you the opportunity to work with another skilled coach. In the absence of any cooperation, we will refund your investment.

What Are Executive Function Skills?

Strong Executive Function Skills Lead to Higher Academic Performance

These skills help students balance school, sports, activities and their social life successfully without falling behind or getting overwhelmed. Wondering what your EFS strengths and weaknesses are?
