MindQuest: Game On! is the most intensive group offered by MindQuest. Each participant and their parents/caregivers will set individualized goals and receive support to accomplish those goals. This is your child’s opportunity to work together with a group of gifted students to develop new productive habits. The psychology of gaming will be used to motivate and inspire change in a more exciting way.
Activities will build on executive functioning skills practiced in Part 2 group sessions: Research-based strategies to improve emotional/behavioral regulation (self-calming), paying attention, flexibility, AND Part 2 groups sessions will add strategies for more executive functioning skills including reducing impulsivity, increasing task initiation and improving organization and study skills (as age appropriate).
Game On! is offered to support the opportunity to develop successful habits. Participants can repeat this group as many times as desired to work on new and individualized goals.
