To work in the Boulder, CO metro area.
This is both a creative and rewarding opportunity for an experienced teacher or a therapist with teaching experience and background. This is a part time job and hours are mostly after school. It is a good position for teachers or therapists that want a second job, want to work additional hours or for someone that doesn’t want to work full time.
As a member of our team of professionals, you’ll be providing Executive Function Coaching to children, teens and young adults with ADHD and provide guidance to their parents. These skills are the management and problem solving skills that are essential for achievement. They also tend to be overlooked as a cause for the lack of success for kids in school! Coaches use the student’s school work and their home life to develop personalized strategies, in the home environment. You will be going to the student’s home to meet for generally one hour per week. The majority of time will be spent working with the student, with a time for summary at the end of the session with the parent.
Our coaches learn the methodology through training and on-going supervision. You’ll learn how to use your skills and experience in new and different ways and then integrate it all to help struggling kids to improve success in school and life as a whole. You’ll be a contributing member to the coaching team that meets regularly. Let’s make a difference together.
“Coaching allows me to give the support to my students individually without the pressure of being in a classroom. I love being able to be a partner in helping them find success through Executive Function skills and strategies.” Amy, Access to Achieve Coach
