MONDAYS:

Executive Functioning 

Executive functioning is a term for all those skills we use when we plan and execute a plan, use our working memory, regulate attention, problem solve, are flexible, switch tasks, etc. The members of this group will learn how to start doing and troubleshooting themselves rather than relying on others to do things for them.

Social Language and Narrative Language Group (BRAIDY)

This is a weekly, one hour class that focuses on improving children’s oral language development through the use of Braidy, the Story Braid. Braidy helps link language development to literacy for children from preschool through 3rd Grade by providing a means to explicitly teach and model literate language, also known as Accountable Talk.   Braidy was designed to introduce narrative language development to children via visual, tactile and kinesthetic modalities.  Braidy was designed and developed by Maryellen Rooney Moreau of MindWing Concepts.  Please see her website for more details.  In addition to working on the narrative language with the use of Braidy, significant focus will be put on improving social communication skills.  Techniques that were developed by Michelle Garcia Winner (www.socialthinking.com ) will also be used throughout this group.  This group is designed for 7-8 year olds.
