LDA’s Executive Function Skill Building sessions are for those with executive function deficits, ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, and other learning challenges.
The sessions help students build the skills necessary to be successful and independent learners in middle school, high school and post-secondary education. Some of the skills our coaches work on with students include:
- Organizing materials such as notebooks, folders, assignments, personal planners
- Organizing information such as note-taking and summarizing
- Study skills, with practice applied to current assignments and curriculum
