Ensuring Neurodivergent Students Have Time Management Skills

SSGC Ensuring Neurodivergent Students Have Time Management(Flyer)2

Wait, what needs to get done today?

As children, teens, and young adults go through life, time management is one of the most important skills they can have. Between school, extracurriculars, socializing, and down time, there is a lot of things that need to get done in a day, and making sure you have enough time to do it all helps keep other issues from arising. If they do not have proper time management skills, they may become anxious about all the things that they have to do, causing them to not want to complete tasks at all. They may then begin to procrastinate, pushing everything onto one day because they think that they have enough time when in reality they don’t, causing them to fall behind.

Successful time management allows for us to have a set plan for our days and ensures we have enough time to get everything we want to complete done. Without it, other executive functioning skills can be made more difficult to handle, such as planning and organizing, task initiation, and more. This is because if we do not have enough time to clean, plan, and start tasks, then nothing will get done, which is why it is so important for them to have these skills well developed.

At the Support for Students Growth Center, we provide the social, behavioral, educational, emotional, and executive functioning skills children, teens, young adults, and their families who may be Neurodivergent or not need for a happy and successful life in and out of school settings. Our team of professionals offers individualized and family coaching/counseling and social skills groups to help teach skills such as how to manage their time to ensure parents do not have to worry that their kids will be unable to make and maintain a functioning independent life on their own. So, if your child is struggling with skills like the ones listed above and much more, the SSGC is equipped with the tools to help.
