I am excited to announce that the Center for Collaborative Change is restarting the Therapeutic Homework Club.  If your child is heavily frustrated with homework, shuts down or homework is a nightly struggle then this program is designed for your child.

The therapeutic homework club is an intensive and time limited two-part program, which explores the emotional and academic barriers to starting, organizing and completing academic tasks and integrates the homework component skills into the bigger picture of academic success.

Part 1: Students participate in a structured 4-6 week counseling group that explores academic/emotional strengths and weaknesses and barriers to academic achievement. Students develop their own frustration tool box that goes home with them upon completion. The information gained is reviewed with the experienced and certified homework club teachers.

Part 2: Students participate in the homework club for 4 weeks (Weeks 1 and 2 are Monday through Thursday; weeks 3 and 4 are Tuesday and Thursday only, specific schedule to be determined).

The only joint academic and emotional intervention designed:

  • to redirect academic frustration
  • to prepare and support students to face academic barriers to work independently
  • to understand the importance of collaborating with homeroom teachers
  • to support students towards self reliance and empowerment
  • to prepare struggling students to complete school work effectively, efficiently and professionally
  • to provide a short term intervention with on-going support opportunities such as counseling, in school collaboration, tutoring and coaching

Typical Schedule

3:00   – Review previous night’s homework tasks and plan approach for current tasks.

3:10   – Homework Chart

3:15   – Homework/skill development

4:20 – Plan for remaining work to be done at home

4:30 – All homework put away/game room open (table hockey, Xbox)

Testimonial

Dear Ben,

We wanted to thank you and the staff at the Center for Collaborative Change for all your hard work with Trevor this past fall.  We feel, at least part of his success this school year has been the result of the skills and confidence he gained at the “homework club.” The staff was quick to determine Trevor’s strengths and weaknesses to help him develop strategies to make homework less of a chore for the entire family.  He has incorporated some of his “tools” into his every day homework routine and they now seem second nature.

We have attached a copy of Trevor’s recent report card – HIGHEST HONORS!!!!!!!! We are so proud and wanted you to share in our joy. Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication.

Sincerely” (Parent of past participant. printed with permission, name changed to maintain confidentiality)
