Executive Function with Seth Perler. LF013

Seth Perler joins me on the Learning on Fire podcast and explores the most important learning and educational moments that shaped his life.

Our guest – Seth Perler

Seth from is an executive function and 2e coach who helps make life easier for students who struggle with homework, motivation, organization, grades, focus, study skills, time management, emotions, overwhelm & resistance. He helps complicated, atypical, outside-the-box learners turn it around in a baffling system so they can launch a successful future. His blog gives you game-changing answers in a sea of misguided educational fluff.

There’s no instruction book for how to help your child navigate school. Traditional interventions often FAIL because they don’t get to the ROOT of a child’s problems and they’re often based on MISINFORMATION. Consequently, maladaptive patterns get WORSE each year, leading to pervasive difficulties transitioning into adulthood. That’s the opposite of what education should do, and the sooner you get tools, the better.

Parents feel frustrated spinning their wheels trying to help. There’s no time for this, life isn’t a dress rehearsal. families need tools that are 1) practical, and 2) that recognize a child’s unique needs. Seth’s blog is all about how to help, and the key is understanding executive function.
