Developing these skills is important for preparing students for an independent life after high school. That’s why – In conjunction with course content – students are taught how to organize materials, manage their time, take notes, attend lectures, and prepare for tests. Weekly counseling sessions may be used as a more “hands-on” approach to reinforce these executive functioning skills.
We know young people need to learn how to work on tasks outside of the school environment. Daily planners, succinct classroom instruction, and a reward system are some of the tools we use to encourage and support our students, while guiding and motivating them to complete coursework in a timely manner.
