BRIDGING THE GAP BY EMPOWERING CHILDREN, FAMILIES, AND SCHOOLS THROUGH MAKING MINDFUL CONNECTIONS.
Executive Function skills. We hear those words frequently but what are they exactly? Peg Dawson and Richard Guare worded it beautifully in their book Smart but Scattered (you can find a link under our resource tab for the book), "executive skills comes from the neurosciences literature and refers to the brain-based skills that are required for humans to execute, or perform tasks." The skills include: response inhibition, working memory, emotional control, sustained attention, task initiation, planning/prioritization, organization, time management, goal-directed persistence, flexibility, and metacognition.
Please join us this summer for an overview of what the executive functions are, how to identify strengths and weaknesses within the executive functions, how to teach and support weak skills, and gain further resources. The class is designed for parents, caregivers, and teachers. We want to put the tools directly into your hands so you are able to help your child and/or students. The cost of the class is $30.00. Due to our limited space, each class has ten available spots. If you would like to register, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you an invoice through your email to reserve your spot. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Middle school can be a challenging time socially. It can be especially challenging understanding the “hidden” social rules, nonverbal language and all of the “grey” areas that exist. Beginning in August, we will host a middle school hang out for teaching, learning, and practicing all of those grey areas in a fun environment. The group meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Each class, of no more than ten, will be a diverse group of students. The mixture of 6th-8th graders will be students who need to strengthen their overall social skills with kids who have strong social skills. We feel it is important to be able to support this age range in more of a natural environment with peers so they can have help in bringing awareness and strengthen self-monitoring skills to “grey” area situations. The cost for each class is $25.00 and we welcome you to drop your middle schooler off and pick him/her back up at 8:00 p.m. Upcoming dates for the Fall semester will be listed over the summer.
