Common Characteristics

Anyone can experience and/or exhibit some of these behaviours from time to time. For someone struggling with Executive Functioning/ADHD however, they are usually “the rule, rather than the exception.”
The following list includes behaviors, feelings and attitudes that are commonly experienced by individuals with ADD/ADHD/EFD. Also, consider whether these characteristics are present across multiple situations: at home, at school/work, at play, or in social situations. If you find that you exhibit 15 or more of these symptoms and they are affecting your life in multiple areas, it is time to take a closer look. Please call and we can help you find solutions that capitalize on your strengths.

How Concept Mastery Works

For example:

No matter how thoroughly we understand riding a bicycle, the understanding of it won’t keep us from tipping over the first time get on the bike.  Mastering riding the bike requires that we get on the bike and ride it. We have to create it in the real world in order to master it.

​The question is: how can we master a concept? We can't get on it and ride it around. But, we can create it in the real world. When we make the concept in clay what we are doing is creating that concept in the real world.

​When we create the concept in clay, and then add what the concept looks like and what the concept means, we have created that concept in the real world. That concept is mastered. To learn more on how clay can alter behavior- click here.

For those struggling with executive functioning/attention, creativity is an essential part of the learning process.  Mastery of developmental concepts requires creativity.

To maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of learning, Rocky Point Academy utilizes clay to master these concepts. The science shows us that this process allows an individual to do more than memorize information, creating the concept in clay allows your mind to perceive the information as a part of your subconscious thoughts and behaviours.
