About the Seattle HOMEWORK CLUB
These weekly, two-hour sessions are a fantastic way for high schoolers to get a head-start on their schoolwork for the week. Sessions are small, allowing students to get plenty of one-on-one learning time with the homework club adviser. In addition to helping with short-term assignments and long-term school projects, students will learn time management strategies, how to "chunk" big assignments into smaller assignments, and other transferrable study skills.
Homework club is great for students who need helping staying "caught up" on their day-to-day schoolwork. It's also a good way for students with long-term assignments to plan out their work and stay on track (rather than leaving it all to the last minute!).
Kinnavey began working with children with autism while earning her bachelor of science degree in psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This experience sparked her enthusiasm for working with children with developmental challenges. After graduating, she moved to Seattle and was trained in applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy at the University of Washington Autism Center. In collaboration with the Autism Center, she worked as an ABA interventionist with children and youth, implementing individualized programs to target behavioral, social emotional and cognitive skills.
Since that time, she has worked with students in elementary school through high school with various challenges and learning differences (ASD, ADD/ADHD, LD, etc.). She applies remediation, modifications and accommodations to make academic content more accessible, with parallel attention to behavioral and social emotional challenges.
