Organizational Skills Training
This September: Join us for our new, two-session family workshop, Building Foundations for Middle School Success (see below for details)
Organizational Skills Training (OST) is an evidence-based intervention shown to be effective at significantly improving organizational skills in students with ADHD and who otherwise struggle with executive functioning. In addition to individual treatment, we offer group OST interventions for adolescents which run concurrently to the school year (usually beginning in February and September) and are proud to offer a short-term family workshop beginning September 2018.
Building Foundations for Middle School Success: Weekend Workshop for Families
This special 2-session workshop is designed to bolster academic success and independence for students who have difficulty staying organized, keeping track of important materials and supplies, managing their time, and/or completing multi-step assignments. This workshop is also appropriate for students transitioning to a new school or a higher grade level with increasing organizational demands who want to ensure that they have effective tools and strategies for getting and staying organized. Participants and their parents will learn techniques for staying on top of assignments and reducing homework hassles. Building Foundations, led by Dr. William Benson, will run on Saturdays September 8th and 15th from 10:30AM-12:00PM.
Organizational Skills Training for Middle School Students
A new 10-week group for students and their parents, Organizational Skills Training (OST) is an evidence-based intervention shown to be effective at significantly improving organizational skills in students with ADHD. Led by Dr. William Benson, this group is designed for students ages 11 - 14 who struggle with remembering homework, organizing materials, managing their time, and planning multi-step assignments. Students will learn effective routines to improve their organizational, time management, and planning (OTMP) skills and increase their academic success. Parents will also participate in a portion of each session, working together with their student to establish behavioral contracts to promote regular practice so that these new routines become habits. Beginning October 15th, sessions will run Mondays, from 6-7:30PM.
