PROGRAM FOCUS: "EXECUTIVE COACHING FOR KIDS"
Many students struggle to reach their full potential. Let's give them the edge they need to succeed. Learning and attention challenges impede the progress of many students. Some have been diagnosed with ADHD. Some have lived through adverse childhood experiences. While they are all brilliant in their own special ways, these students may lack the ability to plan, prioritize, focus, and follow through. Edge coaching programs are there to help.
