In the morning workshop, Ivymount experts will introduce therapists and educators to the challenges associated with autism and ADHD that interfere with a student's ability to be successful in the classroom because of cognitive rigidity and poor reciprocal conversation skills. Drawing from three Ivymount developed curricula and tools, educators will get an overview of how Unstuck and On Target, Conversation Club and IvySCIP can be used to assess, plan for and support the development of essential skills that enhance learning, executive functioning, interaction skills and self-regulation.
