Webinar Description

Unstuck and On Target is an empirically supported executive function intervention, with versions for elementary school, middle school, and high school. By making flexible thinking fun, Unstuck and On Target empowers young people with greater abilities to deal with the unexpected, set their own goals, stay organized, and plan for their future. This webinar will introduce participants to the goals and design of the curriculum: how it is given, how it works, and its effectiveness. OAR has funded the pilot work for all three school-based modules of Unstuck and On Target.
