Parent Prensations on “Solving the Homework Battles”

“Morning routines were a nightmare for our family until David got involved. Now we can actually have a cup of coffee while I children work through their morning routines. David was absolutely terrific. He was able to work with two of our children but really became a part of the family. After he helped our daughters we were sad to see him go. We would recommend him to anyone who has a child that struggles with executive functioning or other organizational challenges”

“I came to Dr. Murphy with ADD feeling like things in my life were always out of control & finding myself working really hard to keep my head above water. The goal was to figure out a way to balance a high demand job with my family life. He helped me to develop a customized system that really helped control my day(s) to better manage my work / life balance. I think combining diet & exercise as part of my program really helped me. I feel this combination approach helped me to pull out the positive attributes associated with ADD & diminish the not so good ones. Dr. Murphy provided me the road map that we tweaked & customized to me which has greatly enabled me to better manage my life.”

“I came as close as someone can to failing out of my first semester of college. It was not the first time I had struggled to complete assignments in school, but it was the final straw in realizing that I needed help to figure out how to be more successful in my life. Dr. David Murphy, a man I would now consider my friend, has been instrumental in helping me to achieve that goal. Every meeting was productive and inspirational. Through his methods of organization I have been able to make better decisions and change my attitude towards life in general. My favorite quote from David is, “Work smarter, not harder.” As someone struggling with ADD, he was more than accommodating. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and confident. I highly recommend anyone with a similar struggle to seek out his aid.”

At Effective Effort Consulting,

our coaches takes a holistic and team-based approach to help clients overcome challenges associated with Executive Function Deficits (EFDs). Our holistic approach is grounded in research-based methodologies that foster affective change, cognitive change, and behavior change. Through this holistic approach to intervention, we help our clients achieve long lasting positive and productive patterns in their life.

Many children and young adults will, through maturation and motivation, independently overcome or compensate for their lagging skills in executive functioning. Others will require extra training and support in order to recognize their lagging skills and work to improve and compensate for areas of executive dysfunction. Interventions can target deficits in planning, organization, and meta-cognitive processing (predicting/evaluating). With time and consistent effort, clients begin to develop positive and productive habits and routines.  These new performance-based interventions have long-lasting implications on class work, homework, grades, confidence, and independence. However, it is not easy and does require time and effort!
