Episode Description

“Executive function” is used frequently when explaining ADHD, but do you really know what this term means? Do you understand how ADHD fundamentally affects executive functions? Let’s start by getting clear on what executive functions are, what they aren’t, and which approaches are not considered executive functioning strategies.

The better you understand how executive functions operate, the better you will be able to design strategies that will help you get things done more reliably. A lot of this involves externalizing executive functions — creating better work environments, making important tasks or items stand out, pre-emptively reducing distractions, delegating certain tasks to better tools, making consequences quicker and more certain, and staying motivated by focusing on an effective process.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • A more useful and sophisticated way of thinking about executive functions
  • Why ADHD makes it harder to consistently convert intentions into actions
  • The treatments and interventions that improve executive functions — and those that don’t
  • How to tweak your environment, choose the right tools, set up the right blockers, consider consequences, and hold onto a resilient mindset
