For teens who have ADHD, leaping from middle school to high school, and from high school to college or to full-time employment, is an especially big transition. Research has shown that ADHD can delay a young person’s maturation and executive functioning skills by as much as three years, making big transitions trickier to navigate. Preparing your middle schooler for the new demands of high school, and setting up your high school student for life away from home, and the tasks required to maintain that independence, requires patience and effort.
In this webinar, parents and caregivers will learn:
- Approaches to foster smooth transitions into young adulthood for older teens
- Strategies to improve problem-solving skills and foster independent living
- Tactics to build and improve executive function skills that are appropriate for your child’s capabilities
- Goal-setting to improve your child’s self-reliance
