“Seth, I’ve always said if I could just get inside my kid’s brain for one day… Your course let me “in.” I was in tears during several parts of your course. Thank you for all you do! You are truly appreciated. Parents need this as we navigate the journey of raising our most amazing 2e kiddos!” – Kaitlyn S.
Hello from Seth. For years people have been asking me to create a course like this and here it is. Enjoy.
What is EF101? EF101 is a crash course all about how Executive Function challenges can impact students and how adults can help. It includes:
- Extensive video course with 45 key video lessons (see outline below). There are 3 core modules: One for all adults who want to learn about EF, one for parents and one for teachers. What’s unique about this course is that I designed it with the intention that all participants to go through all lessons. This way you will get a 360 view of EF. You’ll know what insights I have for teachers and what insights I have for parents. Having a more complete picture will empower all of you to better serve the kids you are trying to help.
- Downloadable and printable support PDFs to help you along the way.
- Homeworks to help you get more out of the course.
- 30-day 100% money-back guarantee.
Who is it for? Compassionate, involved and proactive parents, educators and other professionals interested in EF. If you’re looking for a coaching course designed FOR students, not adults, see UGYG, Upgrade Your Grades.
What will I learn? EF101 will give you a fantastic little foundation in EF. It’s an excellent crash course. You will walk away feeling like you are in a MUCH better position to help students. You will feel confident in your understanding of EF and will feel much more solid about the decisions you are making about how to support students. See outline below or video above.
When can I take it? Take EF101 any time you want. You do not have to wait for the beginning of a semester. It is self-paced.
How long will it take me? If you like to “binge-watch” lessons, you can go through it in a few days. If you take your time, it may take 2-3 weeks. You will need 5-10 hours to focus on the course, depending on how deep you go with the homeworks. I included a lesson that helps you pace yourself.
Can teachers get credits? No, but I can send you a certificate of completion if you want one.
Who is it NOT for? This is not for people who are looking to learn my in-depth coaching methodologies. This will not teach you all of the systems and strategies I use with clients – that is outside of the scope of this course. It’s also not for people who want a sterile, passionless, dry, quick fix, shallow course created by a boring person.
How long do I have access to EF101? Lifetime access. I have no intention of ending access ever, and you can download all of the lessons and keep them indefinitely.
How do I get started? To buy, click a purchase link from this page and enter your credit card info. It takes about a minute and you get access immediately. After you purchase, you will get an email to login. Next, start with the first lesson. I lead you the entire way through.
Is it worth it? Yes. You’ll walk away from it feeling empowered and enlightened about Executive Function. There is nothing like it that I know of, and I designed it carefully so it makes a big difference for you. If it doesn’t work for you, I will refund you.
What links will I want to bookmark?
Can I share it with people? Yes with a spouse or family member. No with friends or colleagues, please. This is my livelihood, my passion, and my life’s work. I’ve spent over 2 decades developing my methodologies, countless hours behind the scenes building this course, putting together the crazy number of moving pieces, spent money on software, hardware, websites and numerous trainings to improve my ability to help families. Thank you for honoring my work.
Is there a guarantee? Yes, if it’s not right for you for any reason, I’ll refund you 100% within 30 days.
What if I legitimately can’t afford it? I get it, email me and we’ll go from there.
