Have a child, teen, or young adult who is struggling with time management, organizational, and study skills?
Is your child or teen having difficulty setting their own routine and taking initiative to do activities that they enjoy or find new ones?
Want them to improve these skills so that they can function more successfully in life as well as in school?
Dr. Heller’s executive functioning boot camp is intended to help children, teens, and young adults begin to develop or fine tune executive functioning skills (i.e., planning, organizing, task initiation) that are highly influential in school related items such as time management, organizational, and study skills. The more comprehensive approach and/or follow up appointments are intended to further support the development, implementation, and maintenance of executive functioning skills from the initial boot camp session.
With most summer plans being cancelled due to Covid-19, this summer presents a unique opportunity to help your child or teen improve their ability to get organized, execute completion of necessary tasks, and create/maintain their own structured schedule. By doing so, it will help them to be able to entertain themselves in a productive manner during the down time this summer. Wouldn't it be great if you could foster your child or teen's interest in photography, coding, video making, art, music, science, etc. and help them to follow through on developing greater skills in a domain of interest this summer instead of them playing on their phone or doing meaningless activities to pass the time?
A special emphasis will be placed, if desired, on helping children and teens use executive function skills to develop their own summer plans and activities as well as work on the follow through to be successful in the execution of the plans/activities.
Executive functioning deficits can affect individuals in many ways including the following:
Make it difficult to plan ahead
Leads to poor time management skills
Affects organization abilities
Negatively impacts school performance
Can cause symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and other issues
These are just a few examples of skills that may be covered during the boot camp based on individual needs:
Help making a plan for the summer
Tools to develop a healthy amount of structure
Assistance planning out how to complete long-term assignments
Help prioritizing daily homework assignments
Assistance using apps and other tools to become better organized
Tips to reduce distractions
Strategies for rising college freshmen on preparing a schoolwork completion plan
Help implementing structure into daily schedule to improve time management/organization
Assistance with time management skills to help children, teens, or young adults complete chores/tasks in a timely manner such as laundry, cleaning, and other non-school related items
If your child, teen, or young adult needs additional assistance implementing these strategies following the boot camp, additional follow up sessions can be scheduled.
