Whether it’s homework, chores, or extracurricular projects, your teen takes forever to get started — and needs a steady stream of reminders to finish. Many parents of teens with ADHD feel exasperated and exhausted trying to teach responsibility, motivation, and follow-through. It turns out the only way to successfully motivate teens with ADHD is with a strength-based, collaborative approach.
Teens procrastinate and avoid doing things that are boring, overwhelming, or unachievable. But when you include your child in creating solutions to daily challenges, you increase his or her buy-in and motivation. Together, you can develop routines based on incentives that matter to your teen. The strategies presented in this webinar will teach all-important executive functioning skills that increase personal accountability and foster independence. Over time, kids procrastinate less as they learn how to motivate themselves more and rely on you less.
