Evaluation & Treatment

Options for therapy may include environmental adaptions/modifications, external aids, and specific tasks that prove challenging for activities of daily living (ADLs). It may also be beneficial to collaborate with a mental health professional as well as a primary caregiver who will offer support and accountability. Individuals who may benefit from executive functioning services include those with a brain injury, ADHD, autism, etc. Cognition and executive functioning may be beneficial for both children and adults. 

It should be noted executive functioning coaching may not be accepted by your insurance but is available through private pay.
