The Emergency Academic Recovery System (EARS) 

ears3 The Emergency Academic Recovery System (EARS) trains students to manage emotions, problem-solve, work smarter not harder and d get things done – the skills of successful people. If your student (middle-school through college age ) is underperforming academically, overwhelmed with school work and wanting to do better, maybe your student is “all EARS.” EARS turns failure on its head, making academic problems an opportunity for growth rather than a reason to despair. With the guidance of an EARS coach, students acquire habits and skills of success that will sustain over a lifetime. Available at The Hallowell Center Boston MetroWestLearn More!
