Episode Description

After a long summer of relaxed schedules, unstructured time, and no homework, the transition back to school is rarely smooth — especially for children with ADHD and especially in a year riddled with uncertainty and concern. You and your child may be riding an emotional roller coaster straight into the fall, which impacts executive functions among other critical learning functions.

In this hour-long webinar, learn practical ways to get your child’s brain back in “school mode” so they are ready for a successful school year, no matter how that looks. If you have tried teaching executive functioning strategies that never seem to “stick,” there is good news: This webinar will offer evidence-based approaches to reboot your child’s brain to listen, pay attention, and follow through at school.

Listen and learn from Rebecca Branstetter, Ph.D., and Elizabeth A. Sautter, M.A., CCC, about:

  • How to “turn on” your child’s brain for listening, focus, and paying attention
  • How to “Zone the Home” for a smooth transition back to school
  • Simple mindfulness strategies to boost EF
  • Effective approaches to increase follow-through when you ask your child to do schoolwork
