SMARTS EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING AND SOCIAL SKILLS PROGRAM
The SMARTS Socialization and Executive Functioning Group is designed for students who exhibit inattention, learning differences, hyperactivity, and low self-confidence who also:
- have difficulty with managing time
- staying organized
- completing homework
- interacting with teachers, and participating socially with peers
Students will have time to work on homework two times a week while learning and applying strategies to support executive functioning. The third weekly session is designed to build social skills. This group is designed to reducing stress around homework and social situations.
Our team made up of executive functioning coaches, therapists, and parents will support your child three times per week during this 9-week group.
Students typically show an increased level of self-confidence, both in peer interactions and school situations. By the group’s conclusion, students will demonstrate that they understand and can use the skills they learn. The way students exhibit this will vary from child to child; however, by showing that they know the skills and when to use them, the group members will demonstrate that they recognize how to improve interactions with peers or teachers.
