Students Who Benefit from Significant Support:
Some of our students receive Tier 1 and Tier 2 Executive Functioning Programming, and still struggle to demonstrate adequate progress in the school environment. Some of these students may have a suspected disability while others may already have a documented disability that impacts their executive functioning skill development. For these students who continue to struggle despite additional support, our staff will often recommend that the student receive some additional tutoring or coaching outside of school. The student will often benefit from the one-on-one, targeted and individualized support that a paid tutor or coach can provide. This support is a fantastic addition to the continued Tier 1 and Tier 2 programming that Assumption-St. Bridget School will continue to provide the student. Assumption-St. Bridget School maintains some recommendations for support in this area, and you may contact your child’s homeroom teacher, or a member of our Student Success Team, for more information on these resources.
If the student has a suspected disability that may be impacting the development of their executive functioning skills, our staff may also recommend an evaluation. Please click here for more information.
If the student has a documented disability that is impacting the development of their executive functioning skills, our staff may also recommend a Student Support Plan. Please click here for more information.
Students Who Benefit from Significant Enrichment:
For students who demonstrate an even higher need for enrichment in executive functioning skills, the focus should be on creating more opportunities for leadership beyond what is offered in our Tier 1 programming. Although we strive to graduate all students with some leadership experience and comfort, students with strong executive functioning skills often benefit from additional opportunitites to grow this area of expertise. Some potential avenues for enrichment in leadership may include:
- Serving as a Classroom Representative;
- Serving as a Classroom Ambassador;
- Being a Guest Teacher in a younger grade’s classroom;
- Creating and managing a new service-project;
- Participating in additional service hours outside of school requirements;
- Applying for Student Leadership Team;
- Serving as a tutor or coach for younger students;
- Taking on a leadership role in extracurricular activities (i.e. Team Captain); and
- Participating in outside leadership training programs (i.e. Junior National Young Leaders Conference).
