We all have hot-spots that stress us out throughout the day, from managing mornings to getting kids (or ourselves) off of technology — and they are usually connected to trouble managing transitions. This program will identify the core Executive Function challenges inherent in managing daily transitions, so that parents (with or without ADHD) can understand when it is a prevention issue, and when it is a management issue.
- Summarize how and why the ADHD brain tends to get challenged in times of transition.
- Observe demonstrations of how typical family stressors (like mornings and technology) are actually manifestations of an ADHD’ers challenges with executive function in general, and transitions in particular.
- Recognize the roles that parents and caregivers can use to handle these difficult times, through prevention and active management.
