Organized, Thriving & Awesome!
This is a 10-session program designed for elementary aged girls. We will address several ADHD topics including cognitive, emotional, social, and behavioral functioning while also promoting self-confidence and awareness. The girls will learn effective, easy-to-use skills to manage their challenges and invest in their strengths in all settings of their lives.
- Understanding ADHD
- Discovering strengths and “lucky chances to grow”
- Impulse Control
- Social skills
- Mindfulness and other calming tools
- Thriving at home, school, and with friends
- And more!

Running parallel to the girl’s meetings will be parent sessions led by Kerrie LaRosa, LMSW. These will be one hour meetings for parents to share their experiences and learn parenting skills related to content in the girl’s meetings. Your participation in the parenting groups will provide insight into the challenges and strengths facing your daughters and ways for you to support them in their skill development in between sessions.
