What if my student needs support after the workshop?
How students are supported post workshop is customized for each participant. Parents the workshop instructor and the student collaborate on best practices based on the student’s age, grade and level of independence with what they have learned. Options include but are not limited to students meeting with a coach virtually or in person at a regularly scheduled time or as needed or attending a weekly structured class to be held supported as they practice planning ahead and following through with studying.
