Have a child, teen, or young adult who is struggling with time management, organizational, and study skills?

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 the pandemic, and uncertainties about what school will look like in the fall, solid executive functioning skills are vital to successful academic functioning. The boot camp will help children and teens to learn tools to help navigate remote learning, a hybrid model, as well as adjust to changing educational modalities, should their school change at varying times between in-person, remote, and hybrid learning formats. 

 

 

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 navigating remote learning or a hybrid model

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.
