Free Webinar Replay: Screen Time for the ADHD Brain: Technology Rules and Systems for Easily Distracted Teens

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how to manage screen time for teens with ADHD with Wes Crenshaw, Ph.D.


Phones. Computers. Tablets. Game Consoles. TVs. The ubiquity of screens today is impossible to ignore and even harder to manage, especially if your teen has ADHD. It’s true that technology is powering huge advancements in personal organization, learning, and information gathering. It’s also true that screens are really really distracting — and can become a tremendous way to avoid the things we need to (but don’t want to) get done. The key to using screen time productively, for many families, is the establishment of a parent-child agreement and system designed to maximize the value of electronic tools and to minimize the downside.

In this webinar you will learn:

  1. Why video gaming is especially appealing for teens with ADD and why that’s a bigger problem than you think
  2. How to make an electronic “cookie jar” for your family’s devices, limiting their use to agreed-upon times
  3. How to balance screen time with other activities and responsibilities, and how to use timers to manage it
  4. Three ways to organize and guide daily life using electronics
  5. How to archive and organize critical information using your phone’s camera
