Educational

For the majority of children, adolescents and young adults, the ability to succeed in school significantly influences their ability to maintain functional behavior, stable mood, overall health and well-being.  At MCA, we strive to help clients secure and enhance academic achievement by identifying specific educational challenges and effective supports. And our associates work extensively with clients, families, schools and other professionals to develop educational plans, access accommodations, build executive function and problem-solving skills and identify the best school for their respective learning needs.

All of our educational services and supports are provided with attention to the interplay between cognitive ability, motivation, mood, learned behavior and stress. And all of our assessments, reports and ongoing work integrate a strength-based approach that propels our clients towards their individualized goals.

Educational Groups

Executive Function/Online School Support Groups – These groups will focus on keeping students on track and utilizing skills to help navigate distance learning.  Students will review their work for the week by checking educational platforms and writing assignments and scheduled classes in planners or other organizational tools. Students will review their work and use of executive function skills from the previous week. Additionally, students will plan out long-term assignments and problem solve any issues they are encountering with the online curriculum. Students will also learn how to prioritize and structure their time. Clinician will teach an executive functioning skill each week and demonstrate how strategies will improve student’s ability to navigate distant learning.
