Free Webinar Replay: The Middle School Survival Guide for Students with ADHD and Executive Function Deficits

In this hour long webinar on demand, learn strategies for middle school students with ADHD and executive function deficits, with Marydee Sklar.

Life in middle school is hard for all students, but especially for those with ADHD. Developmentally, adolescents are searching for independence — focusing more on their peer relationships and often pushing parents away. In addition, academic and social expectations change dramatically in middle school: Students must meet the demands of multiple teachers, maintain focus during longer days, and manage more homework and projects. These challenges often exceed the developmental capacity of the ADHD brain’s executive functions.

Have hope! The first key to middle school success is understanding how ADHD brain development lags behind many of teens’ challenges. The second key is problem-solving from the perspective of the ADHD brain’s needs. We do this by identifying and externally supporting the weaker and slower-developing executive function skills of the ADHD middle-schooler.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How the brain’s executive function development connects to expectations for independent homework and seat-work
  • How parents can support the development of their child’s executive functions
  • How to teach your child to develop time awareness and use external tools to get things done
  • How to use a school planner to develop the life skill of future thinking

Webinar replays include:

  • Slides accompanying the webinar
  • Related resources from ADDitude
  • Free newsletter updates about ADHD
  • An opportunity to receive a certificate of attendance
  • Closed captions

This ADHD Experts webinar was first broadcast live on October 20, 2020.
