for kids and teens with busy minds
A 10 week course for kids having difficulty with issues with inattention, organisation, as well as all the emotional stuff that goes along with school and social life.
We run this group for upper primary and high school. The courses will be split up into several groups depending on what year level they are in . This is to ensure that relevant cognitive, practical and emotional skills can be taught depending on the children’s developmental and school level.
These group programs focus on increasing awareness, concentration, planning & organization skills, problem solving skills, social skills, emotional resilience, as well as anger, stress & behaviour management in children with attention, organisation or impulse control issues. Those issues typical of disorders such as ADHD and related conditions. This is done through active mindfulness, third wave cognitive behaviour therapy (ACT), fun cognitive skill building such as attention training & problem solving, compensation strategies for home and school, as well as parenting support for these issues. This is all done in a fun and active way using games and exercises to keep kids motivated.
