Therapeutic/Educational

Ivymount Outreach provides educational and therapeutic programs for children with Autism, ADHD, Executive Function disorders and other developmental disabilities in the Washington, DC area.  Our mission is to bring the excellence of the Ivymount School to the community; all programs have been vetted and most have been developed or piloted at Ivymount School.

In the area of executive function, Ivymount Outreach offers a unique blend of parent and student interventions in the nationally published, research-based Unstuck and On Target!  Developed and piloted at Ivymount, Unstuck targets flexibility and problem solving.  Outreach also offers a new middle school organization skills class (Get in Charge).

Our social learning groups target a variety of skills.  Some groups target how to make and keep friends (Secrets of Friendship, Friendship Mythbusters, and PEERS® for adolescents), and how to play games with friends (Game time). Other groups target conversation skills (Conversation Club and Conversation Street). 

Ivymount Outreach is also now offering a program that addresses emotional regulation (Zones of Regulation).

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

Applying to an Ivymount Educational or Therapeutic 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 for new participants applying to an educational/therapeutic program.
