ADHD may cause children to feel overwhelmed and stressed, leading to disorganization, frustration, and procrastination. BriteMinds learning interventions help students make order from chaos.
We celebrate the uniqueness of each student by creating an individualized learning program that includes consistent feedback, self-reflective reviews, transitioning exercises, and time management practices. Academic goals are set according to the child’s abilities and learning history. When needed, we collaborate with other professionals to meet the student’s learning goals. Students with attentional and organizational challenges find the BriteMinds program engaging, as interacting with the instructors is fun, relaxing, and free from stress.
In addition to the academic content, BriteMinds incorporates executive functioning skills into the lesson plans. We help students function more effectively in the following areas: prioritizing, time management, sustained attention, goal-directed persistence, project planning, and more. Developing confidence and positive self-esteem greatly depends on how successfully children are able to manage these skills.
