LifeCore: Small Group Classes
LifeCore’s small group classes will consist of 4-10 students, which is the perfect size for maximum engagement, interaction, and building attention skills. Practices during the course will include: Growth Mindset thought reframing, Goal Setting, Time Management, Organization, Note-Taking, Attention & Focus, Problem Solving, Studying at Home, Working Memory, and Stress Management. There is flexibility within the group setting to focus more on particular areas as needed, and these classes are great for building time management and organizational habits, working memory aptitude, and an ability to center and calm oneself.
LifeCore: Individual Training
LifeCore’s individual training will give your student more flexible scheduling, and the ability to focus on the areas that they need help with the most! Additional skills, including all forms of attention (alternating, sustained and selective), can be developed through our intensive one-on-one program, currently offered in an individual or pairs setting only. This allows us to heavily focus on those areas of attention building your student needs the most, and to meet your students’ specific needs in terms of which organizational, time management, and planning skills to focus on.
According to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, executive functioning and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses.
