Neurodivergent learners are intelligent, creative, out of the box thinkers, but can have trouble thriving due to challenges with executive function skills like organization, planning, prioritizing, and working memory. This class is designed to help learners strengthen these skills and give them tools to better navigate academic settings and life in general.

There is no learner homework for this class. Families are encouraged to review supplemental material shared after class and reinforce our lessons in everyday situations.
Please check the classroom for any handouts posted that should be printed out ahead of time. Where possible, I also try to provide Google Doc links for most resources. Lots of paper, something to write with, and colored pens and pencils will come in handy during some class sessions.
A narrative evaluation about learner participation is available upon request.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Kahoot! will be used in some of our note taking lessons. Participation is optional and learners are given extra time to record their answers. No account is required, but an extra device to play on is helpful. This class uses copies of Google Docs as well as shared Google Docs to facilitate collaboration and make work accessible to students with writing challenges. Some lessons also use Google Jamboard, but the teacher is happy to add learner ideas for them as needed.
