Katrina offers online classes in mindfulness as well as one-on-one summer reading and writing intensives. Mindfulness classes require a minimum of five students enrolled for the class to run.
Supporting Students with Executive Function
Saturday, August 20, 10 am to 12 pm Mountain time
In this two-hour class, Katrina will provide a detailed picture of executive function and its importance in a child’s life, especially in connection to academics. Katrina will share what learning disabilities are often found in conjunction with executive function gaps, and parents will leave with practical tools, resources, and a better understanding of how to support students’ executive function.
Mindfulness is shown to increase focus, reduce anxiety, and help us cultivate empathy. Students who practice mindfulness report less reactivity, distraction, and stress. Katrina was trained through Mindful Schools to provide group and one-on-one mindfulness instruction.
Staying fresh with academics during the summer is important, especially for students with learning disabilities, and it is often a good time to increase the number of sessions. That's why we offer summer intensives. Students will get one-on-one instruction tailored to their particular needs.
Orton-Gillingham students will need to meet a minimum of twice a week during these intensives (you can also sign up for more lessons per week).
