Executive Functioning

NewHope students need assistance with organization and executive functioning skills on a daily basis. Executive functions are necessary for goal-directed behavior. Skills we work on at NewHope include the ability to initiate and stop actions, to monitor and change behavior as needed, and to plan future behavior when faced with novel tasks and situations.

Case Managing

When a student is accepted to NewHope, we take responsibility for case managing the student. All students at NewHope are assigned a case manager. Following a 45 to 60-day assessment period, the case manager, in cooperation with the therapist develops an IEP utilizing input from NewHope staff and current testing. The following is a list of duties of a NewHope case manager:

  • Initial Assessment and Needs Analysis
  • Monitoring Student's Progress
  • Communicating Progress
  • Creating IEPs and Attending IEP Meetings
