Episode Description

Are you growing increasingly frustrated with your child’s outbursts, disorganization, or forgetfulness at home? You’re not alone. Many parents long for relief from the pressures of school only to find that their children continue to struggle every day with executive dysfunctions related to ADHD.

Summer is a great time for family adventures and down time, but it’s also perfect for building your child’s executive functioning skills. It can be easier to teach emotional regulation, organization, and working memory without the pressure of academic responsibilities and the burden of homework. Instead of inundating your child with reminders or arguments about chores, cleanliness, and following directions, work with him to find practical solutions that foster cooperation and connection.

Whether you’re traveling on vacation or staying at home, continue to develop these all-important aspects of daily living to help your family now — and smooth out the transition back to school. By choosing mutual goals, learning effective tools for self-management, and creating doable routines, you’ll teach your child or teen to accomplish things with fewer arguments and more buy-in. These positive changes will build lasting skills for independence.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Identify triggers, reduce meltdowns, and build self-control
  • Improve working memory skills beyond reminders and “nagging”
  • Create simple, practical organizational systems
  • Develop routines that foster independence and get things done
  • Collaboratively decide on the goals and challenges that most affect your child
  • Use the highly recommended 5Cs approach to each of these challenges

This ADHD Experts webinar was first broadcast live on July 30, 2019.
