Organizational Skills Training for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders


Organizational Skills 

Organizational Skills treatment program is based on more than 10 years of systematic research by our research and clinical faculty.  We have developed, tested, and demonstrated the effectiveness of methods to improve the organization, time management, and planning (OTMP) behaviors of elementary-school age children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders. Our research has resulted in this new evidence-based treatment approach available first at the CSC.

In this cutting-edge research program, we have learned that the majority of children with ADHD have ineffective OTMP behaviors. When used successfully, these behaviors enable children to keep track of their school assignments and materials as well as items at home; use their time effectively; and plan ahead in order to complete important tasks at school and at home. Problems in executing these behaviors contribute to limited school success, interfere with homework completion, and cause increased conflict between parents and children.

In a test of our program, children improved significantly in their OTMP behaviors, homework completion, and overall academic performance and standing. Their families also experienced less conflict.

We are offering this program to a limited number of children. The program will be for children with confirmed ADHD who also have problems with OTMP behaviors and are enrolled in grades three through five.

Therapists fully trained in the implementation of this program are available in all three of our clinical locations, in New York City, New Jersey, and Long Island.
