EXECUTIVE FUNCTION SKILLS help us plan, organize, strategize, manage time, pay attention to and remember details. In school, these skills help students plan for future assignments, sustain attention to tasks, and stay organized. For some students, these tasks are like climbing a mountain: you don’t know where or how to start! This course will tackle organization, time management, and study skills. Students will develop strategies for:

  • Prioritizing assignments
  • Keeping materials organized
  • Sustaining attention to tasks
  • Managing time inside the classroom
  • Starting assignments efficiently
  • Managing time outside the classroom
  • Staying organized in the classroom
  • Studying for subject area tests efficiently and effectively.

If difficulty in any of these areas limits your student’s success in the classroom, he or she may benefit from skill development in the area of Executive Functioning. In addition to learning new skills, students will take home resources that can be used in every classroom, including monthly and weekly calendars, graphic organizer outlines, and study guide shells.

FOLLOW UP SESSIONS INCLUDED: Students will benefit even more with these session! Camp students will meet again to check in on progress and help set up for a successful year. These sessions are included in the cost of camp tuition.
