SOAR (Some Assembly Required) Transition Planning Summer Program
Eligibility Criteria: Youth entering grades 6-9 with a diagnosed learning disability or ADHD
Description: Are you a student in grades 7,8, or 9 with a learning disability? There are so many differences between elementary school and high school. Are you ready? Join us for Some Assembly Required (S.O.A.R), a 4-week program to get the most out of high school with the least stress. Understand your learning disability and how to get the help you need to succeed in high school—gain strategies for balancing school work and studying while balancing your life. Get organized and stay on top of tasks to get in the right lane for your future career goals! We will explore Individual Education Plans, accommodations for classes and tests, super helpful study tips, amazing organizational hacks, opportunities for career exploration, and so much more!
Participants will receive workbooks to record their work. Many of the concepts taught will be reinforced with games and hands-on activities, with incentives being provided to promote participation.
