CFCS Coaching Programs
Developing a Game Plan is an important first step to helping your student succeed at college. A CFCS College Success Coach meets with the student and parents to create an individualized Game Plan prior to school starting in the fall.
CFCS offers two packages to help prepare students as they transition from high school to college. We can help you determine which program, Essential or Optimum, is best for your student. Or we can work together to customize the program to fit the needs of your student.
We begin with a personalized needs assessment that helps us develop your student's Game Plan. Coaching sessions and working directly with your student's college can give you both the assurances you need before heading off to college in the fall.
Autumn Book Club
Going to college is an exciting time! Students who received support in high school through an IEP or 504 Plan may need additional support as they transition from high school to college. As a parent, you may have many concerns and questions. CFCS can help.
Our Autumn Book Club is for parents and families whose children may have difficulty successfully transitioning to college.
CFCS has selected College of the Overwhelmed: The Campus Mental Health Crisis and What to Do About It as our must-read book for parents. This landmark book explores the stressors that cause so many college students to suffer psychological problems.
The CFCS Autumn Book Club will meet on three Thursdays: September 15, 22 & 29, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Syntero Dublin.
What Is A College Coach?
For students with autism, ADHD/ADD, substance abuse or mental health issues, transitioning to college can be especially difficult. College Coaching provides an ally and advocate for students who need support.
Your coach will address and support the student with executive functioning skills:
• Time management
• Interpersonal skills & socialization
• Impulse control
• Anxiety, depression or fear
• Navigating new environments & seeking support
• Medication management
• Self-sufficiency & autonomy
A professional college coach provides an early warning system for students and parents to address issues before they become a crisis.
