Executive Function- P Group

Executive Function- Primary Group

Group Details:

Every Friday

Time: 4:00pm-5:00pm

Hong Kong Developmental Paediatrics and Child Neurology Centre (Central)

Number of kids per group: 3-4

P1-P3

Research indicated that children diagnosed with ADHD are marked with symptoms of impulsivity, inattention, and hyperactivity. Such neurological developmental disorder has impacted and caused executive dysfunction, emotion dysregulation, inability to receive delay gratification and time processing deficit. Such indirect impact has caused challenges on children’s ability to daily functioning.

The skill training group targeting at P1-P3 students with ADHD is designed based on evidence-based researches. We aim to refine children’s capacity to organize and plan, regulate emotionally and socially, and shape desirable behaviors. In addition, throughout these weeks of sessions, children will gain opportunities to practise their attention and mindfulness skills, which in turn, not only regain their focusing skills but also their locus of control.

Note: If the group has started, no make-up class or refund will be made for any absence.

Executive function is a set of higher-level cognitive ability, involving with the regulation and control of various cognitive processes such as working memory, concentration, decision making and abstract thinking. Attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) exerts a profound impact on one’s sociability and academic performance. Relevant researches suggest that executive function starts developing when we are three years old. Hence, early intervention and assistance is exceptionally helpful and crucial in enhancing children’s growth of executive function.

This skill training group is an evidence-and-research-based program, referencing from “PATHS Preschool/Kindergarten” program and “Tools of the Minds” curriculum to systematically foster children’s executive function.

This program was tested in Hong Kong and proven to have significant effect.


Note: If the group has started, no make-up class or refund will be made for any absence.

Facts on Common Developmental Conditions

Facts on Common Developmental Conditions

  • Children with ADHD/ADD often present with hyperactivity, inattentiveness and weak impulse control. The symptoms will improve with medication and behavioural modification training.

  • Children with ASD often have weakly integrated eye contact, low communication intention, language impairment, as well as rigid cognition. They may demonstrate repetitive sensory-craving behaviour. The symptoms will improve with Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), speech therapy and sensory integration training.

  • Since symptoms of neurodevelopmental conditions often overlap and co-morbid, your child will need a developmental assessment as early as possible in order to plan the tailor-made intervention.
