Executive and academic coaching for young adult
I've done everything I could to address my son's academic and emotional issues over the years, and he sure had enough of both. He is 19 now and is a sophomore at a very good state college, and would fail if I weren't helping him keep track of homework assignments and even completing them. He had a neuropsych eval in his late teens that showed he has extremely low processing speed, and was diagnosed with ADHD around then as well. He had a severe depressive episode while in high school, so we were all focused on just getting him through that and keeping him alive, so I got into a habit of helping him then, but that continued even once he got back to what's normal for him. He gets very upset if I remind him to do something, says I take away his desire to learn, yells and threatens to move out (he's home thanks to COVID), but then right a couple of hours before his assignment is due he asks for my help and then we stay up until midnight to get it done and turn it in. We both hate to live that way, but don't see how to get him to be independent and get through college. Oh yes, I suggested that he takes a year off or goes to an easier college, but he says he really wants to get a degree at this one. He says all the right things when we discuss the situation, and has improved but only marginally, and I think he needs some kind of help to learn to manage his time and assignments.
I've seen some suggestions in recent posts, but I was wondering if others have any recommendations for an academic coach.
