Defying Dysfunction in College: Preventing Failure-to-Launch Expert Executive Function Panel
Disorders in executive functioning interfere with student success in college, both academically and emotionally. The result is that many successful high school students become part of the “failure to launch” statistics.
Larry just returned from the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) conference where he moderated a panel of experts who shared how higher education programs are coaching students and teaching them strategies for success. The distinguished panel included Jacqueline Jewett, Mitchell College, Managing Director of Student Relations; William Presutti, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Director, Regional Center for Learning Disabilities; Kevin Mayne, Landmark College, VP for Enrollment Management; Maria Bacigalupo, Curry College, Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL); Stefano Papaleo, Lynn University, Director of Admissions.
The experts presented information to help consultants understand how to differentiate among programs when providing guidance to families.
They explained how to identify at-risk student profiles, and provided detailed examples of coaching and scaffolding. They also discussed the elements and nature of executive functions, accommodations, and supports.
Larry provides college admissions coaching to students of all academic profiles.
