Educational & Therapeutic Programs

Ivymount Outreach provides Individual Educational and Therapeutic Services including Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Tutoring.

Ivymount Outreach also provides Educational and Therapeutic Group Programs for individuals with Autism, ADHD, Executive Function disorders, and other developmental disabilities in the Washington, DC area.  All programs have been vetted and most have been developed or piloted at Ivymount School.

In the area of Executive Function,
Outreach offers a unique blend of parent and student interventions in the nationally published, research-based program Unstuck and On Target! Developed and piloted at Ivymount, Unstuck targets flexibility and problem solving.  Applied Unstuck is offered as a followup program to participants that completed the Unstuck and On Target! program.

In the area of Social Learning,
Outreach offers social learning programs that target friendship and conversation skills. All groups are targeted at specific areas of needs, such as understanding friends and friendships (Secrets of Friendship and Friendship Mythbusters), developing Conversation skills (ConversationClub and Conversation Street), and how to make and keep friends (PEERS® for young adults). 
Please Note: Elementary aged participants should apply to a “Social Learning Program” and the Outreach team will place the participants into a specific program based on the participant’s strengths, needs, and appropriate peer group. Not all groups may run each session.

In the area of Self-Advocacy,
Outreach offers a group for transition ages students (ages14-18) that explores individual student's strengths and develops essential self-advocacy tools. 

Some education/therapeutic programs include parent education classes that correspond with student learning, creating a wraparound intervention program that supports the entire family.

Application Process for Group Programs
​Applying to an Ivymount Educational or Therapeutic Group Program is a collaborative process. We work with families to find the right fit for their child’s social learning, emotional regulation or executive functioning needs. To do this, we review the materials in your application, meet your child in person and then work with you to find the right program to meet your child’s needs. There is a $50 application fee* for new participants applying to an educational/therapeutic group program.
*Application fee does not apply to Self Advocacy Program.
