Looking for tutor/coach in Executive Functioning for teen
I have a 16 year old (sophmore) son who's had an IEP since preschool. He's been in general ed with some pull out/push in support. He's a great reader (decoder), pretty good with comprehension, strong in math but can be very unfocused (ADD) and disorganized when it comes to things he's not interested in.
My son keeps his grades up (mostly Bs and Cs) by turning in homework and completing shorter assignments effectively but when it comes to end of chapter tests/finals in subjects with lots of facts and nonfiction reading material (e.g science, history), he has a hard time preparing a comprehensive study guide (looking through the textbook and finding the main idea) and then effectively studying the material, usually scoring Ds on these kinds of exams, even though he "studied". He also struggles with writing.
We are looking for an educational therapist who can help him with executive functioning (working memory, time management, planning/prioritizing etc.) and study/test taking skills. He gets supports at school through his IEP but it's not enough. We live in Lafayette and traveling to the Berkeley/Oakland area is too far on weekdays unless we find a therapist who can work on this side of the tunnel.
I would love some feedback from anyone who's used Strategies for Learning, SOS (Student Organizational Services), Bella Menti (Danville) or any other coach/tutor/ed therapist who you can recommend.
Thank you so much!
