The first step is the hardest. This is true for many children with ADHD who perpetually struggle to get started on classwork or homework. They procrastinate, put it off, and sometimes avoid their work altogether — perhaps because they feel overwhelmed, not confident in their skills, or mentally fatigued from a day of executive-function demands. The trick to getting started for many students is feeling ready — emotionally, physically, and mentally — to begin. The problem: This essential preparation feels a lot like work for many kids, who avoid it at all costs.

In this webinar, parents will learn:

> How to help your child understand and feel the benefits of starting work in a timely manner

> How to create a comfortable workspace that breeds confidence

> How to fully understand and meet school expectations by anticipating potential challenges

> How to manage the stress and worry that may prevent your child from beginning his work

> How to help your child “start his engine” at school or at home

> Time-management techniques that help kids visualize deadlines and completed projects
