If your child has an ADHD diagnosis filed with the MMW health office or at your child’s elementary school health office, Minnetonka Middle School West offers a Learning Lab to students with ADHD. This lab is funded through a LCTS grant and district funds. The Learning Lab meets before and after school. Typically, students attend the learning lab 2 days a week for one hour.
Students will gain understanding of ADHD, learn strategies to help them manage their ADHD and implement those strategies at the learning lab. Students routinely check Skyward and Schoology for their missing assignments and use lab for work completion and organization. Education about ADHD is fundamental to the program. Topics such as Organization, Time Management, Self-Awareness, Motivation, Goal Setting, Personal Learning Plan and Personal Advocacy are discussed and reinforced.
