Who we work with and how
Organized Minds works with students in grades 1–12 and in university who benefit from non-standard instruction. Such students might experience any of the following:
Difficulties with executive functioning
Other undiagnosed challenges
These experiences often create a gap between imagination, intention, and execution. And that gap frustrates students and families. Alleviating frustrations by creating greater understanding is what we do.
Our process in your home
By coming into your home, we can identify the physical and social context of frustrations. This information allows us to effectively address challenges with schoolwork and social anxiety. Once we identify these challenges and their context, we facilitate conversations between children and parents to establish mutual understanding. This understanding builds compassion and patience.
Our process at your school
When parents have a good relationship with the school, we can advocate for you or your child’s needs on site. And we can improve you or your child’s relationships with teachers. This service is best suited for private schools.
Our process with students in university
We meet you regularly on campus or at a coffee shop to develop a personalized plan that addresses your individual struggles. We help you understand yourself as a learner:
by identifying your strengths
by validating and understanding the challenges you face.
This is an important first step in advocating for your needs and to improve your motivation.
We also help you develop strategies to manage procrastination and stress. Strong planning helps reduce feelings of frustration, which in turn addresses avoidance of work.
