Event description

Description

This course will focus on the skills and strategies for school and life for neuro-diverse students. This is not tutoring but can be considered "strategy camp". This class focuses on executive functioning skills, self regulation and reading writing strategies. Compassionate minds class was created for students who learn differently and combines skills training and a compassionate approach to self acceptance.

Dominique Sullivan has dyslexia and holds 3 University degrees. She works in a school library helping students embrace their unique qualities through mindfulness, and skill based hands on training.

Compassionate Minds Class is designed to help students show the world their amazing strengths and diversity of thought. People who are neuro-diverse are the leaders of tomorrow and are innovators and creators.... but struggle in school. Students will bring their projects and homework to class to practice the new skills in action!

Participants will learn:

  • Organizational skills

  • Reading and Writing accommodations

  • Getting projects and homework done

  • Time management skills

  • Figure out how your brain learns the best

  • New technology skills to support learning

  • Have time to work on their homework to apply new skills


This class will help students with:

  • Dyslexia ( Reading/ writing disability)

  • ADHD

  • Executive functioning difficulties

  • Developmental coordination disorder (DCD)

  • Dysgraphia

  • Autism


Packages are available that combine Compassionate Minds + Dinner + Mindful Self Compassion. Teens would stay at the Bethlehem Center from 3:45- 8pm and receive dinner for free with the enrolment in both classes.


It is HIGHLY recommended participants stay and take the Mindful self compassion class for teens as many teen struggle to accept their learning difference. Mindful Self Compassion teaches us to embrace all parts of ourselves and find happier healthier lives.

“I feel more comfortable with myself.” - Teen Participant age 15
