Jeff Sosne, Ph.D.
1 Parent meeting, Thursday, May 3, 2018, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
2 parent/student meetings: Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, 2018, 9:00 – 12:00 p.m.
The new weekend group format meets the needs of busy families, avoids excessive travel time and utilizes the concept of intensive practice. This group teaches elementary children, 7 – 11 years of age, struggling with self-control and/or attention (AD/HD) to work productively and behave appropriately within group settings. This program introduces behavioral, cognitive and emotional regulation skills that are reinforced through specially designed peer group activities. The group model encourages peer support and enables the children to learn from each other. Parents observe to learn and then apply the concepts at home. The weekend begins with a Thursday evening class for parents-only. Parents from the Beginners Group and Paying Attention to Attention Group will meet together. Students and parents will then meet on both Saturday, May 5th (9:00 a.m.– 12:00 p.m.) and Sunday, May 6th (9:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.) for the group activities.
