Special Education Executive Function - Girls Group

grades 6-8

Students who struggle keeping binders and backpacks organized, getting homework completed and turned in on time, and effectively studying for tests, especially students with ADD or ADHD who are on IEP or 504 Plans, can benefit tremendously from an executive function coach who can assist with study skills and organization.

This small group of middle school girls with ADD or ADHD on an IEP or 504 Plan meet twice a week with an executive function coach to focus on organization systems, reminder systems, time management, study skills and the use of assistive technologies to help them build a foundation of success. They also learn how to advocate for themselves in terms of their 504 Plan or IEP accommodations. The group is made up of just girls because ADHD presents itself differently across boys and girls. By working as a group, students have the opportunity to share their experiences with peers so they do not feel so alone in their struggles. It also provides an opportunity for students to share what is working and not working so they can all help and support each other under the guidance of the organization coach.

This class can be repeated in order to reinforce these skills until they are mastered.
