Just in time for back to school, Dr. Emily Levy, author and founder of EBL Coaching, a tutoring service specializing in using multi-sensory techniques to help students with dyslexia and ADHD, is pleased to announce the release of two new workbooks, Executive Functioning 1 and Executive Functioning 2. The workbooks are designed TO give students extensive practice implementing strategies for specific strategies for specific executive functioning skills, including planning, time management, homework management, organization, and note taking.
With the summer coming to a close, these workbooks give kids the head start they need to successfully ease back into the school year.
*EBL Coaching specializes in one-on-one home and on-site tutoring for students in grades preK-12 using research-based, multi-sensory techniques. We start with an assessment of each student to gain a sense of his or her strengths and weaknesses and the kinds of methods that are most appropriate. We then put together a diagnostic and prescriptive plan that is customized to each student’s needs, and hand match the student with one of our instructors who is specifically trained in the most appropriate research-based methods. Sessions can be held at either our NYC or NJ learning center, the student’s home, or the students’s school. We also offer 3-week intensive summer sessions, along with specialized instruction for students with dyslexia, learning disabilities, and ADHD!*
*Dr. Levy, the EBL Director, is the author of Strategies for Study Success, a 15-part student workbook series designed to build independent study skills for students in grades K-12. These multi-sensory workbooks are easy for both teachers and students to follow and help build automaticity in core skill areas. The Strategies for Success workbooks are currently used at schools nationwide.
Dr. Levy is also the author of the Flags and Stars five-part Orton Gillingham student workbook series, which teaches students how to decode and encode words with blends, consonant digraphs, vowel digraphs, silent e patterns, and multi-syllabic combinations.

Here are five tips for organizing your child for back to school:
1. Help your child to set up a working notebook that she takes to school on a regular basis, along with an accordion file that she keeps at home for filing old papers. The accordion should be divided into homework, notes, and tests/quizzes and be cleaned out once per week on a designated day.
2. Teach your child child to divide projects and long-term assignments into manageable steps by breaking down tasks into smaller pieces. They should be entered separately into a planner by due date.
3.Encourage him to take two-column class notes, with the main ideas of each segment on the left and notes on the right.
4. Designate subject-specific colors for folders and notebooks: green for science, blue for math, etc.
5. Encourage effective time management skills. Have her predict how long he thinks a given task will take (estimated time), then compare to to the actual time it takes.

Thanks for the great advice. As a twenty year teacher, there’s nothing better than one on one interaction.
Thanks for the tips. After having two months off we are a mess here
These are some great tips. Being organized is a good way to help facilitate learning.
great information as always.
This year I’ve released more of the ownership in organization to my kids. I got them set up but want them to start doing it themselves.

I need all the organizational help I can get right now. I feel like everything has fallen about since school started.
