It’s that time of year! Last minute school decisions are being made, curriculum and school supplies are being purchased, and for those of us with kids who fit outside the box, this can be a stressful time of decisions!

But, you may be asking, what exactly does that look like? What does Yellow Wood DO? How does it work? This post will answer some of your questions!

Before we dive in, I want to share a couple amazing videos we recently filmed at Yellow Wood! What a great opportunity for us to share about what we do, why we do it, and how we’ve helped families find success. Watch them below:

Yellow Wood’s Story

First things first, what on earth is Success Training?

Success Training is essentially another term for Cognitive Therapy. Wait, what is cognitive therapy?

In Success Training we work on the underlying skills needed for academic, behavioral, and social success. Some of these include:

  • Reflex integration

  • Auditory processing

  • Visual processing

  • Working Memory

  • Attention Skills

  • Visualization

  • and more!

How do we work on these? Though specialized movement exercises and brain based games and activities. Everything we do in Success Training is FUN, but also has a specific purpose of strengthening the brain.

Ok, now that we all know what Success Training is, let’s talk about our program options.
