Stepping Up to Challenges
Grades 2-3 and 4-5 groups
This popular introductory groups has a uniquely dynamic games-based format designed to engage intense and sensitive gifted students to develop executive functioning skills. Executive functioning skills practiced in this group include research-based strategies to improve emotional/ behavioral regulation (self-calming), paying attention and flexibility and dealing with anxiety and stress. Special topics will be discussed relating to coping with the pandemic.
