Description: The Hallowell Todaro Center is happy to partner with Soundview School again this year in supporting middle school students as they develop and target their executive function skills. This after school group focuses on learning about the brain, gaining a general understanding of executive functioning, and how they impact students' social, academic, and personal lives. This year's group is going to build on last year with an intentional focus on practical study skills. The students will be setting goals, tracking progress, and building habits that will help them both in and out of the classroom. The group will be offered fall, winter, and spring trimesters, but because the course builds on each previous session, it is important for students to begin the group in the fall. Please email Hazel Estrella for registration information.

Turn off the screen, put down the controller, and get ready to use your imaginations!
