Study Skills and ADHD. Building Skills Over the Summer.

Summer Learning

Only five weeks remain in the school year. Can you believe it? It’s been another year of resilience – for students, parents, teachers, and medical professionals. I hope this summer brings a much-needed sense of closure to another crazy academic year and a renewal of hope and excitement for what lies ahead.

We have a few programs running this summer to support the transition needs of students. We will run virtual classes. Call us with any questions. 888-389-8650 or schedule a screening to discuss options. Schedule a screening call.

The primary concerns for teachers and parents are how to help our students recover the lost academic skills and how to develop the foundational study skills needed for middle school and high school. Below are just some of the skills we are targeting with our students this summer and into the fall.

  • Study skills and the learning process
  • Learning styles and multiple intelligence
  • Pre-learning strategies
  • Active learning skills – reading, writing, and listening
  • Note-taking and outlining skills
  • Memory and recall strategies
  • Test-taking strategies
  • Long term planning – college readiness
