RESEARCH STUDY OPPORTUNITY
Does disorganization impede your student’s academic progress? NYU offers families Organizational Skills Treatment at no cost
Elementary school students (grades 3-5) are being recruited for a study on organizational skills and brain function at the Child Study Center at NYU Langone Health in Manhattan, New Jersey, and Long Island.
Eligible children must show impairments in organization, time management or planning. The research study includes a brief assessment, two brain MRI scans at NYU in Manhattan, and a behavioral treatment: Organizational Skills Training (OST) adapted for delivery to parents and children over the internet, all provided at no cost.
The treatment takes place after school hours for ~12 weeks during the school year. In a randomized clinical trial, students who had completed OST training demonstrated robust, sustained improvements in their organizational skills, academic performance, and conflicts at home. The current treatment program is delivered over the internet twice a week and is designed to help children meet the organization, time management, and planning demands for virtual, in-person, and hybrid school instruction.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212)-404-3770.
