Student Success Story
How Emily Got Ahead
When Emily was a sophomore in high school, her mother contacted Staying Ahead of the Game (SAOTG) at the recommendation of her school counselor in order to help her build her Executive Functioning skills and simplify her daily routines. Emily and her parents were hoping to be able to improve their relationship through the simple process of allowing Emily to take more ownership of her own success in the classroom.
