To understand “executive function”, it is helpful to imagine a brilliant but scattered executive. This executive, in an effort to be more effective and organized, hires a talented assistant to help the executive function - to help her prioritize, remember appointments, stay focused, and complete tasks.
Telos is celebrating eight years of success in developing this revolutionary service for young people looking to succeed.
Telos students are typically bright but underachieving, mostly due to poor executive function skills. In 2010 Telos developed an executive function coaching program in which students learn Exective Functioning (EF) strategies and are mentored on the over time. The strategies include: Attention, Flexibility and Shifting, Task Initiation and Completion, Metacognition, Organization, Time Management, and Working Memory.
