Kids are better able to focus on schoolwork when the home they live in is organized and conducive to learning. For children with ADHD, and their caregivers with ADHD, that order is easier said than achieved. It’s important to create a structured environment, with effective supports to build time management, so that messy backpacks and homework battles no longer dominate your nights.

In this webinar, Ann Dolin, M.Ed., will explain the unique challenges that parents with ADHD may face in helping their children get organized and manage their time effectively for school — and provide approaches for neurodivergent caregivers that turn chaos into calm and lead to improved academic performance.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Strategies for breaking down tasks into smaller, manageable steps to help parents with ADHD and their children stay on top of assignments, deadlines, and schedules
  • The importance of using visual aids, like timers and calendars, to help parents with ADHD and their children stay organized and focused
  • How to use strategies called the 3-to-1 Ratio and Nag-Free Zones to make after-school time more positive and productive
  • How students can best communicate with the teacher to advocate for their academic needs, especially if they have a 504 Plan or IEP
