Why should I sign up? 

This answer may be very different for everyone! Generally, if you have difficulties managing tasks and navigating life on your own, without support from adults, this group will benefit you!

 

Check out the questions below, do any sound like you?

  • Do you struggle to manage your time, plan events, keep your belongings organized, solve problems on your own or have difficulties completing everyday tasks without parental assistance?

  • Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by tasks and are not sure where to start? 

  • Do you often complete preferred tasks and forget to do your important ones?

  • Are you looking to increase your independence in many areas of life?

  • Are you having difficulties navigating high school without a lot of support from adults in your life?

  • Do you dream of attending college or university but do not feel confident in your skills?

  • Do you wish to start working but you're not sure how to juggle school and a part-time job

 

If ANY of these questions stood out to you, or you generally have difficulties with organization, time management or any other executive functioning skills, this group will be a great fit for you!

 

As you get older, the complex skills listed above become more apparent in everyday life. Whether you are hoping to increase your independence with everyday tasks or you have a more long-term goal, the Brain Hacks group can help you build a solid foundation to get you there.

 

 

What can I expect?

Each group session will take place virtually on Wednesdays between 6:00-7:30 pm and will be led by the same facilitator each week for 10 weeks.

 

The meetings will be interactive, and will often begin with a check-in from everyone on how their week has been and any goals they have worked on.

 

The group will then begin their topic lesson for the week. The facilitator will ensure that there are ample opportunities for participation, examples and fun activities to help you learn these tricky skills.

 

Near the end of the session, the facilitator will ask each participant to set a goal for the week ahead, and parents may be asked to attend at the end as an accountability partner for the participant.

 

Ultimately, you can expect to meet like-minded friends and learn executive functioning skills within a safe and supportive environment.
