Effective Student Workshops help students develop essential executive functioning skills to establish and reach their educational goals, training them how to manage their academic demands and overcome challenges. Workshops are held in person in Atlanta, GA over four sessions.  Parents attend the last 15 minutes so they understand what the students have learned and know how to help them follow through.
