Executive Function Summer Workshop for Middle Schoolers


Is your child prepared to succeed in middle school? Do you ever worry that your child’s inattention, poor organizational, planning, time management, and study skills will hinder their success? This hands-on workshop will help your child become more self-sufficient and develop the skills necessary to manage multiple classes, assignments, and materials in middle school.

Karina has extensive experience both as an occupational therapist specializing in executive function coaching and as a professional organizer. She will teach your child practical and effective strategies, providing a strong foundation for success in middle school and beyond.
