All Kinds of News for April 08, 2020
Coeur d'Alene, ID: Northwest College Support is launching new programming in March 2020, designed specifically to help high school and college students around the country taking online courses as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Distance Program through Northwest College Support is currently accepting new students. The Distance Program also includes access to online group activities such as study tutorials, live watch parties, and guided meditations.
The founder of Northwest College Support, Dan Hanks M.Ed, LPC, Ed.S, counselor and school psychologist says, “Almost overnight, students around the country have found themselves taking exclusively online courses, living at home, or sheltering in place. For many students, such as those with ADHD, anxiety, or a specific learning difference, this sudden change and decrease in daily structure can be really detrimental.” The Distance Program is designed for high school or college students who already currently take online classes, or already enrolled in online courses for an upcoming term. The Distance Program is constructed to give these students support with organization, follow through, accountability, problem-solving, prioritization, self-advocacy, and other executive functioning skills.
Students participating in the Distance Program through Northwest College Support can choose from a monthly package that includes a video conference call with an Educational Coach at Northwest College Support either once, twice or three times per week. Each package also includes full access to other online activities and at-a-distance group support in the program. Therapeutic support and family coaching is also available on a case-by-case basis.
