Parent + Child ADHD Class on Zoom
My parent coaching program has helped many parents reframe their approach and gain success in this area. It is important to note that nothing I teach you is about behavior modification. It is about discovering what your child’s struggles are – with executive functioning skills, frustration tolerance, social-emotional needs, sensory challenges, communication, learning – and finding ways to address the root causes.
Now, I’m taking it a step further and offering a Parent + Child class that will improve routines and communication and help restore peace to your household. By involving your child directly in collaborating, you are showing them that they are an important partner in your relationship.
Executive Functioning Group Coaching for Teens on Zoom
In 2021, I held a series of online classes for teens that focused on teaching them about their EF skills and how to strengthen them. We also worked on improving study skills and personal development skills such as goal setting and habit forming.
Now I’ve combined information from those instructional classes with an interactive coaching format to help teens be more than consumers and learners – they will have an opportunity to put real action behind these strategies!
Middle School Tuesdays on Zoom
Tuesdays 5 - 6 pm on Zoom
August 10 - September 14
Middle School Thursdays Zoom offers a 6-week, one hour per week, group focusing on teaching one or two executive functioning skills and one complementary study skill each week to middle school students. I also add a personal development topic that goes along with the theme of the week. They will learn valuable skills to last through middle and high school and into college. The student will be given opportunities to put lessons into practice immediately with their own schoolwork. This is not “extra” work – it is complementary instruction to help your student succeed in this online and hybrid learning environment.
