Social skills challenges, losing homework, maddening morning routines — children diagnosed with ADHD are complex, frustrating, and fiercely independent. And they still need their parents’ help, even if they won’t admit or accept it. Pinpointing which executive function skills your teen needs to improve — and the techniques for accomplishing those improvements — will help you create a solid plan for moving forward through elementary, middle, and high school.
In this webinar, we will help parents become executive function detectives. Moms and Dads will learn to gather evidence from their child (what, where, when, why), interview witnesses (teachers, family members), and consult with experts (teachers, doctors, and therapists) to determine the causes of executive function shortfalls. Many families have found success and avoided conflict using our “detective method” of identifying and improving executive functions.
In this webinar, learn how to:
- Understand the components of executive functions
- Determine how executive functions affect your child’s success at school, home, and in their social life
- Master the “detective approach” to pinpoint your teen’s areas of need
- Problem-solve solutions to those areas of weakness together
