Providing You With the Tools You Need.
Fort Wayne Neuropsychology is proud to present:
Organizational Skills Training Program
This Organizational Skills Training program is an empirically supported treatment program to help children and adolescents with ADHD develop organizational and executive functioning skills to help them with organizing school materials, keep track of assignments and complete tasks. Many of these skills are often areas of weakness in individuals with ADHD and cannot be fully addressed with medication alone.
The Organizational Skills Training program is based on the work of Richard Gallagher, Ph.D., Howard B Abikoff, Ph.D., and Elana G. Spira, Ph.D. The program is a total of 20 sessions and materials needed to complete the program will be provided. Although this may sound like a big time commitment, it allows good habits to form with guidance and support. This program is empirically supported, which means when followed in its true form for the full duration of the program, positive outcomes have resulted in research.
Any child age 9 to 13 diagnosed with ADHD or Executive Dysfunction who is struggling with developing organizational and study skills.
When and Where:
Individual Sessions will be available at the Fort Wayne Neuropsychology office on Fridays between 9am and 5pm. Sessions will last one hour. The first 45 minutes will be spent with the child and the last 15 minutes will involve the parent(s) and/or guardian.
