executive functioning program

Initiated in Fall 2019, the Executive Functioning Program (EFP) is a new program offered through Disability Services. The EFP provides individualized services beyond standard accommodations for students diagnosed with disabilities related to executive functioning skills. Through the program students have access to weekly meetings with a Learning Coach. Learning Coaches are typically graduate students or professionals with experience in a related field.

Each week the Learning Coach will assist with strategies for developing skills in time management, organization, self-advocacy, and independence. When appropriate, the Learning Coach will also connect students to on-campus resources and assists in communication with faculty. Weekly sessions will progressively assist students to foster academic success.

EFP offers two levels of support:

Level 1: 

  • For students who are entering their first year as an Executive Functioning Program participant
  • Weekly meetings with coaches (up to 4 hours weekly)
  • Fee: $4,000/academic year

Level 2:

  • For students who have completed one full year in Level 1 and are seeking continued support
  • Weekly meetings with coaches (up to 2 hours weekly)
  • Fee: $3,000/academic year

Application Process 2023-2024

The application window for the 2023-2024 academic year will open the beginning of March.
