Organizational Skills Training for Parents

Organizational Skills Training (OST) is important in giving your child the techniques to help them better relate to the family dynamic, motivate for academic performance, and increase independence. OST techniques for kids include: 1) learning time management, 2) taking responsibility/ownership over their work, and 2) organizing materials they need to complete their tasks. Join us as Dr. Reichert and Dr. Long discuss how the organization, time management, and planning can increase positive behaviors.

Presenters: Kan Long, Ph.D. and Elizabeth Reichert, Ph.D.

Individual Treatment

Organizational Skills Training: Individual Treatment

(elementary age & adolescents)

Organizational Skills Training provides support for caregivers of 3rd-6th graders in learning and understanding evidence-based strategies for improving their child’s organization, time management, and planning skills. Growth in these skills can have a significant impact on a child’s academic performance and proficiency as well as reduce tensions and have a positive influence on family relationships at home.
