Student Goal Setting

Students, especially those with ADHD, often have dreams and desires but lack a concrete plan to realize these wishes. Setting meaningful goals is an impactful way for students to develop and improve self-regulation skills. In addition, research shows that when students set goals and work toward them, they perform better, experience less stress and anxiety, and are happier and more satisfied with their lives. Learn to teach the value and the process of setting, monitoring, and achieving goals.
