In this article, I am going to look at the pricing of some of the leading executive functioning coaching companies out there so you can compare pricing (and models) to decide what is the best fit for your needs.
When looking for an executive functioning coach for your child, you are likely to see prices all over the map.
According to my review of four leading providers of online executive function coaching, you should expect to pay somewhere between $150 and $337.50 per hour for an executive function coach, with the average of all coaching rates landing at $230.92.
Read on to see how I arrived at these numbers.
What companies did I include in my pricing comparison for executive function coaching?
I reviewed the top four companies that show up when Google searching "executive function coaching" and only provided pricing for companies that met the following criteria:
Provide online coaching
Had their pricing listed on their website
Have multiple team members (not solo providers)
The companies that met this criteria were:
How did I determine the final rate?
Because only two of the companies charged by the hour (Life Skills Advocate and Executive Function Specialists), I had to calculate how much the other companies would charge if they did charge by the hour.
To do this, I took their weekly cost and multiplied by 16 (an approximate number of sessions a student would have in one school semester) and then added in any additional fees the company described on their website.
This calculation gave me the total cost you would pay if working with this company for the entire semester (approximately).
In the next column, I put the total "FaceTime" hours you would have working directly with a coach, according to what was listed on each company's website.
You can see what they wrote by clicking on this sheet to review what page I was referring to.
Once I had that information, I divided the total cost for the semester by the total "Facetime" hours, to get the rate per hour with all costs factored in.
How much do different executive function coaching companies charge?
Let's take a look at the different providers and what you get for what you pay:
Note 1: Beyond Book Smart Coaching offered a discount on pricing if clients purchased a package of sessions in advance.
Note 2: Edge Foundation Coaching described their typical session as 30 minutes, but said it could go up to 50 minutes.

There is a wide range of costs for executive function coaching. When looking for the right coach for your situation, make sure to have a full understanding of what you are getting into.
If time with the coach is an important factor for you, you may want to go with a company that charges by the hour.
If have a consistent cost per week is important, you may want to go with a company that charges a flat rate.
It all depends on your preferences!
