Who requires Adolescent Counselling?
In adolescence, our ‘occupations’ evolve from play and learning to responsibility and leadership. In adolescence, we start to expect individuals to demonstrate maturity in school and social situations. For adolescents, ‘executive function’ takes a much more prominent role in overall achievement. Executive function is comprised of all the little skills that keep us motivated, organized, attentive, focussed and controlled.
Many adolescents struggle with executive functioning skills, this may be due to a diagnosed condition such as; a learning disability, ASD, ADHD, FASD, Anxiety, or undiagnosed with challenges noted at home and/or school.
