Executive Functioning Skills Building Program

Executive Functioning Program

Akron Children’s Hospital’s Executive Functioning Skills Building Program helps children learn practical ways to improve skills related to memory, planning, organization, emotional regulation, and time management. Parents also learn adjustments they can make at home, such as creating a homework area free of distractions or finding ways to keep their child motivated.


This program offers short-term training to give children the tools they need to help them initiate and complete tasks, problem-solve, and control their behaviors and emotions. The program is designed for children ages 10-16, with or without a diagnosis of ADHD.


The program is based on proven treatment strategies and offers these 8 modules that can be tailored to your child’s needs:

Symptoms that are causing ongoing problems in how your child functions at home or school may be covered by insurance plans with mental health benefits or Medicaid. Check with your insurance provider to verify coverage. For more information or to make an appointment, call 330-543-5081.
