Executive Functioning Success (ages 9-11) Monday/Wednesday, August 12-28, 3:30-4:30pm, $480 (3 weeks)
Parents and teachers may start identifying concerns in executive functioning in elementary school. These concerns may be evident in difficulty managing behaviors and emotions. More specifically, children may demonstrate issues with self-control, settling down, or they may become easily frustrated. Parents and teachers may also observe academic challenges, in which students have difficulty starting or completing tasks.
The executive functioning group with 9-11 year olds will focus on metacognition, goal setting, organizing time and materials, and self-monitoring. Students will develop an understanding of how they learn, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. They will create achievable goals and identify obstacles to achieving those goals. Students will learn how to organize their belongings, estimate the time to complete tasks, and learn how to prioritize their time. They will gain an understanding of how they focus in different situations and what their emotions are in different situations.
Each session will begin with a mindfulness practice and end with an opportunity for parents to learn about the strategies that were taught during that group lesson.
