Our Executive Functions Skills Coaching Make a Difference

Our commitment is to teach valuable executive functions skills to those navigating a world that often lacks inherent structure, enabling them to reach their highest capabilities.

How We Became Experts in Executive Functions

Our founder, Yi Chang, embarked on his journey by teaching executive function skills to local peers in a modest Pomona, California library. Struggling with ADD and his own executive functioning disorder, Yi viewed this endeavor as a unique opportunity to support families in a way he had never experienced before. Upon graduating from UCLA in 2015, Yi made a pivotal life choice. Instead of pursuing medical school, he opted for training in clinical psychology, establishing Executive Functions Coach in 2017. During his formal training, he discovered that a deficit in executive function skills wasn’t exclusive to individuals with ADD or ADHD; it also affected those grappling with anxiety, depression, and other neurocognitive and psychological disorders, sometimes leading to suicidal ideations. Determined to transform the stress associated with executive dysfunction into success, Yi made it his life’s mission. In 2018, Executive Functions Coach welcomed its first coach, achieving the milestone of assisting over 100 families in 2019! As of 2023, Yi and his team proudly declare their success in helping over 500 families and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to support you and your family!
