ADHD/ Executive Functioning
Open Questions Discussion:
Executive Functioning – Currently at the Driscoll grades 3-8 there is a red Binder System being implemented – “Dragon”. It is a cohesive presentation of homework that the student uses to organize his/her studies and work load. The Guidance Counselors are working closely with the Teaching teams to instruct and maintain the initiative of Executive Functioning throughout the student population.
Social Skills Groups – The Social Skills Groups are in the midst of being reformatted. Social Skills Groups will no longer be included on the IEP grid but will be an integration of students those with and IEP and those without an IEP. The groups will strive to be modeled on:
* Social Thinking Curriculum
* Play based
* Older groups – mixed community based
Guidance Counselors will be integral in choosing who attends. As of today at the Runkle, there is still no formation of a Social Skills Group. Follow-up will be pursued and related as more developments occur. Once it is up and running, Runkle will be the ﬁrst school to offer this group and then Devotion will follow probably mid year. After these groups trial periods are completed, other schools will follow.
