“Practical Organization and Time Management Strategies for Middle and High Schoolers with ADHD” [Video Replay and Podcast #186]

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how middle and high schoolers can stay organized at school with Michelle Cooper and Michelle Grey.

Episode Description

“Why didn’t you bring home the right textbook to do your homework?”
“How will you complete a month-long project in one night?”
“What do you mean, you don’t know what homework is due tomorrow?”

If you’ve ever asked these questions of your child, you know how challenging staying organized is for kids with ADHD. Students today have more demands, distractions and busier schedules than ever before. Using the strategies, tips, and resources offered in this webinar, parents can improve their children’s organizational and time management skills and thus their academic success.

This webinar will give you strategies for:

  1. managing the day-to-day organizational challenges facing students inside and outside the classroom
  2. understanding your child’s “thinking style” and finding organizing methods and tools that fit his or her style
  3. using organizational systems that will improve his or her chances of academic success
  4. collaborating with your child and his teacher to support his efforts at organization
  5. using products, books, and websites to ease the process of organization for your student
