We develop students’ executive function skills through mentorship and movement. Untapped’s research-backed approach to supporting students helps them gain confidence and increase independence.


We created Untapped Learning to help students hone the skills they need to succeed, in school and beyond. ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, and other executive function (EF) challenges can negatively impact students’ academic experiences, and it’s our job to introduce strategies that play to their strengths and tackle those obstacles. With our mentors to hold them accountable, students will develop EF skills like organization, planning, task initiation, and more.

“I refer my clients to Untapped Learning because they have created an ideal system for students with ADHD to be successful and meet their personal and academic goals. They don’t put a bandaid on the challenges that they face – instead, Untapped gives students tools that they can use for a lifetime.”

“Untapped Learning’s students have responded overwhelmingly well to their lessons about how the brain works and how to improve their executive function skills. They continue to provide their students with the tools they need to feel empowered and ready to navigate school and adolescence. This is what we want education to achieve.”

– Andrea Clyne, Colorado School Psychologist of the Year 2015

“I have had the pleasure of working with Untapped Learning for years. They have developed a unique style of executive function coaching based on the Spark model developed at Harvard University. Untapped Learning teaches students the “rules of school” and holds them accountable with weekly tasks. They also reinforce the use of movement as a way to harness executive function skills. Untapped Learning’s work frees parents to more peacefully coexist with their children. I highly recommend them as an executive function coach for families that are looking for a program that works!”

– Dr. Marcy Cooper, Psychiatrist

“My son started working with Untapped Learning in middle school and then took a break through high school. He started working with Untapped again as a freshman in college.  He had some struggles with organization and getting overwhelmed with the increased expectations and independence of college. His mentor has been amazing in helping him break down his classes and organize his week for success. He has excelled and gained confidence in himself and his abilities. His mentor has empowered him to know how to manage the many challenges of college life.”

“Untapped Learning has changed my children’s academic lives. They worked with both my daughter and son and during the time they were with Untapped, they learned how to manage their time, get their homework and studies in on time, and were way more organized overall in school. Untapped mentors connect with every kid and teach them how to help themselves and become independent, self-advocating students. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation, they truly care about each and every person they interact with. Their passion for working with kids is what makes them so special.”

– Stephanie, parent

The mentors are top-notch, balancing fun and accountability. I can whole-heartedly recommend this program – worth the time and expense!”

They keep things light and they are quick to turn around a bad attitude with a sense of humor. They help your kid with homework struggles and anything else your student needs. With Untapped Learning, you will be able to watch your student succeed in school this year.”
