Using the Flexible and Focused curriculum, practical strategies will be explored to help teach learners to be focused, organized, flexible, and able to effectively manage their emotions and their environment. Resources such as checklists, data sheets and task lists will be shared with the learner to use in real-life everyday situations. The goal is to improve the executive functioning skills, as it applies to the learner, in the following areas: self-awareness, inhibition and impulse control, self-management, attention, organization, problem solving, time management, planning, working memory, emotional self-regulation and flexibility.

These sessions will provide the learner with the appropriate tools to enhance their own executive functioning skills, which are involved in everything they do every day to manage their own behaviour.

Duration: 2 hours per week for 8 weeks

Start as early as July 13, 2020.

To be scheduled with Therapist based on Caregiver availability. Sessions to be scheduled between July and September.
