What are Executive Functioning Skills &
Why are they important?

Simply put…

Executive Functioning skills are what help us to get done what needs to be done. It sounds so basic, right? However, for many people, especially those with ADHD, it’s just not. Executive Functioning skills are a set of skills that help one plan in order to meet goals; emotional regulation; prioritize; time management; focus and attention; impulsivity; transitioning; organization; and several others. Weak Executive Functioning skills impact children, teens, young adults, college students, professionals, and adults. 

Executive Functioning skills have no relation to intelligence, although weaker ones may give the impression that there is a lack of intelligence or ability.  Even with the gift of intelligence, one must have strong Executive Functioning skills to execute and complete tasks.


Studies prove that those diagnosed with ADHD typically have weaker Executive Functioning skills than their peers, so these must be strengthened to reach goals and ultimate potential. These skills, when established and “executed” properly lead to less stress and more success. But not everyone has strong Executive Functioning skills and that’s where we step in! These skills can and must be bolstered for one to operate to their full potential!

Is Executive Functioning skill enrichment right for you or your student?

Yes, if one is…desiring stronger critical thinking skills, problem-solving strategies, resilience, and grit building, self-awareness, and growth.

Coaching vs Tutoring

What are the differences between Life-Coaching and Tutoring?

Coaching and Tutoring are not the same thing, although depending on the needs and skills of a person, they can and do complement each other. Both are a process, and neither are typically just quick fixes.

Tutoring focuses on teaching content and building skills within a core subject. In this company, that means skilled Reading/ELA instruction, which encompasses phonics, comprehension, writing, and everything in between. We work with students on phonics, comprehension, fluency, writing, kindergarten readiness, EOG preparation, Executive Functioning skills, confidence, enrichment, and support. We meet the students where they are and build skills and foundations to continue their growth.

Coaching focuses on how to navigate opportunities or challenges to reach goals and independence. Coaches work on current problematic behavior to improve them and gain greater self-reliance and awareness. An academic or life-coach provides the systems to help students, teens, college-age, and adults learn and implement core skills, such as Executive Functioning skills, that assist in helping academic or work-based performance holistically. Our coaching specialties include ADHD and other hidden disabilities, Parenting, and Executive Functioning skills as well as personal and relational development. A parenting coach comes alongside parents as he or she navigates the challenges and rewards of raising children.

Whatever your desire and needs, you can rest assured that when we partner together, you are joining with a person and a company who is skilled, experienced, compassionate, and supportive. No one should ever feel like they must journey alone, and you won’t have to do so either when working with Dynamic Learning Connection!

Coaching vs. Therapy

What are the differences between Life-Coaching and Therapy!

Therapy focuses on mental health and emotional healing, while life-coaching focuses on setting and achieving goals. A therapist may focus on the reasons for a client’s behavior and thought process based on history, whereas a life-coach will focus on how to overcome obstacles to reach a client’s goals and pursue greater potential. Life-coaches collaborate with the client to sustain progress toward the goal/s and to build greater self-awareness and accountability. Life-coaches help to uncover what a client needs to succeed and guide one towards the goal. 

Our goal is to empower our clients to reach their goals and to motivate and facilitate growth. Our primary specialty is working with academic goals, life transitions, hidden disabilities and families impacted and affected by them, and strengthening Executive Functioning skills.
