Does your child struggle with things like homework, focus, motivation, grades, organization, study skills, avoidance or overwhelm? Are you concerned about how this will impact their future?

I'm Seth Perler, an Executive Function Coach, Education Consultant & Advocate. I'll teach you exactly how I empower outside-the-box learners to navigate a baffling educational landscape so they can successfully launch a great future after school.
You see, struggling students are often misunderstood, usually as a result of deep systemic dysfunction (in other words, a lot of schools look great on the surface, but can be way off course behind the scenes). Many of these kids are seen as lazy, unmotivated or uncaring, which couldn't be further from the truth. These kids are expected to conform to an outdated system rather than the system conforming to the legitimate needs of divergent learners.
This stuff drives me crazy, because it causes a ton of unnecessary suffering, for far too many students, and this can literally knock them off course in life, (which can take people decades to recover from.) Education-is-not-a-game. Life ain't a dress rehearsal. We need to do right by our kids, and in this day & age, it can be hard to even know what that means. But my blog is meant to help you cut through the noise & get results that matter. It's all about a little-known, yet absolutely critical concept called "Executive Function" .
I specialize in neurodiverse learning needs like ADHD, twice-exceptional, 2E, stress, avoidance, anxiety, gifted & talented, dyslexia, Aspergers, autism, ASD, sensory integration, etc.. I generally work with kids in middle school through college. Subscribe above for my free blog and I'll start sending you the answers you need.
“The most impressive attribute of Seth is his steadfast dedication. He has never given up on our daughter, even when she has become overwhelmed and wanted to give up. He has taught her to believe in herself. She is now graduating and will walk in the December ceremony. She could not have done it without him.” – Bonnie Auerbach, Los Angeles, CA
"Sarah absolutely aced this day! I am sitting back in wonderment! She attributes her success to you! Normally, she’d be crying, frustrated, overwhelmed, and angry. Instead, she was quite calm! She took that in stride, I was so impressed with her! I said, “How does it feel?” She said, “Norma!!” Go Sara! I said, “Wow! So much executive skill went into making this day work! What do you think enabled you to be so successful and on top of things?!” She said, “Seth!” Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so thrilled for her (and for me) to see her starting to take charge and function more age appropriately in her life." -- Karin A., New Jersey
