Virtual Hall’s Evidence-Based Coaching Strategies
Executive Function Coaching
Executive Functioning is an umbrella term that refers to a variety of capacities that enable goal-directed behavior, including behavioral regulation, working memory, task analysis, organizational skills, task initiation, and self-monitoring.
Utilizing a variety of pre-, post-, and ongoing assessment tools, Virtual Hall coaches and students are able to idenfity areas of growth, track progress, and use data to inform supports and services for optimized student outcomes. Don’t just guess. Know.
Developed by Dr. William Miller and Dr. Stephen Rollnick, Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented, client-centered, relationally-based coaching style for eliciting lasting change by helping students explore and resolve ambivalence, set and achieve goals, and increase their capacity for effective self-monitoring.
Universal Design for Learning
First defined by Dr. David H. Rose of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, UDL is based on research in the learning sciences, including cognitive neuroscience, that guides the development of flexible and multi-modal learning environments.
Collaborative Problem Solving
Originating from the work of Dr. Stuart Ablon, this is a relationally-based approach designed to increase student agency and efficacy. The CPS model views challenges as an expression of a skill deficit which students and coaches address together in a student-centered coaching relationship.
