Many children with ADHD live with serious executive function challenges that impact school performance. They forget to write down homework assignments, lose important papers in a bottomless backpack, and feel overwhelmed by big projects. These smart, creative kids end up earning disappointing grades, in large part because they’ve never learned how to get (and stay) organized with ADHD.

In this webinar, Susan Lasky, M.A., discusses:

> You can't have one without the other: Systems for organization, plus task-management strategies to maintain the systems

> The art of being a detective: Encouraging students to discover the best solution for them

> Narrowing the options: Choosing the ‘right’ tools for tracking assignments, managing papers, and handing in homework

> Taking control of the bottomless backpack

> Success breeds success: Helping your child make small, doable changes that lead to big results

> Avoiding the dreaded overwhelm: Minimize frustration and maximize engagement
