Junior high or middle school can be especially hard for students with Learning Disabilities/ADHD. With multiple teachers, increased workload and a lot more students, junior high can be an overwhelming experience.

In this program, a Foothills Academy provisional psychologist will facilitate a group for kids with LD/ADHD who are preparing to move up to junior high/middle school or are already there. A variety of topics related to challenges with executive functioning and social skill expectations at the junior high level are covered including study skills, time management & organization, peer relationships and bullying, goal setting and dealing with adolescence and self-esteem issues. In a fun and interactive environment, participants will become better prepared to make the junior high experience a successful one.
