SOUTHFIELD OPENS SECOND LOCATION IN WILTON

Transition from High School to College

Most workshops depend upon specific timing and location.

Our workshops offer one-on-one (or one-one-small if you bring your friends) with complete flexibility.

You sign up for the workshop, and we work with you to create a calendar of three two-hour meetings.

College is a big step in your teen’s development and you want them to be prepared. They face increased academic demands, changes in life schedule, multiple responsibilities, and complete independence for the first time. This six hour interactive workshop provides an opportunity for teens heading to college to get accurate information about the changes they face, learn necessary skills, and explore their own expectations and feelings with other teens.

 

Fee for six sessions: $800.00

Cogmed Working Memory Training

Cogmed is a scientifically validated method for improving working memory. Working memory has been shown in countless research studies to be an underlying key to successful completion of academic and life skills. Reading comprehension, writing a paper, or completing a multi-step math problem all require the ability to hold several details in one’s mind while completing the task. Carrying on a conversation, following instructions, and organizing one’s room all require this same skill. Cogmed training is conducted online, so it is a flexible intervention that can be done anywhere an Internet connection is available. During the training sessions, which are overseen by a Southfield Center Certified Cogmed Coach, a student is presented with game-like activities that increasingly challenge working memory, thereby systematically improving working memory ability.

Our fee for the Cogmed Working Memory Training Package is $1,450. This includes 8 sessions: an intake/start-up session, 5 coaching sessions, a wrap up session and a follow up session. In addition to the session fee, we reserve the right to bill for any phone calls, email communication, or meetings with school staff or parents that exceed fifteen minutes in duration. This will be based on an hourly session fee of $150.
