What:

This six week program targets Executive Function skills.  These skills are the ‘air traffic controllers’ of the brain, helping us direct our actions to achieve our goals.  We will use outdoor projects (gardening, woodcraft, animal care and interaction) as well as kitchen adventures (planning and preparing meals, eating together, following recipes) to develop skills like:

  • Time management eg using visual timers and schedules to move through our tasks
  • Breaking down large tasks into smaller chunks
  • Following sequenced instructions
  • Organizing tools and spaces for work
  • Prioritizing tasks
  • Regulating emotions and managing through the distress of non-preferred tasks

Where:

144 Wilson St E, Ancaster & surrounding trails/parks

What to Bring:

  • Dress for the weather!  Make sure you’re prepared to be in the great outdoors in the rain, snow or sunshine!
  • Feel free to send a spare set of clothes/shoes in a clearly labelled backpack if this is a concern
  • Clearly labelled waterbottle
  • An awesome attitude!
