About the event

Does your tween or teen seem to lack all motivation? Do they need aggressive reminders to begin tasks — especially those they’ve put off for as long as possible? Is it almost always a struggle to finish?

Many adolescents with ADHD stall out when trying to start and/or complete assignments and tasks, especially when they are no fun, boring, or challenging. ADHD-related procrastination and disorganization, combined with perfectionism and low self-esteem, can hamper their ability to complete work or remember to turn in what they have accomplished. Successfully motivating and supporting these students means following a strength-based, collaborative approach that synthesizes cognitive behavioral interventions with practical routines and mindful awareness.

In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Saline, award-winning author, international speaker and consultant, explores how to motivate teens with ADHD and offers effective strategies for offering effective support while helping them build life-long skills.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to identify the executive functioning skills that affect motivation
  • About strategies for developing enduring time-management skills, organizational skills, and goal-directed persistence
  • About effective, collaborative routines with meaningful incentives to reduce procrastination and perfectionism
  • How to reduce overwhelm and anxiety by increasing confidence and resilience
  • How to determine appropriate levels of parent participation in kids’ lives
  • How to help tweens and teens with ADHD develop the accountability and autonomy that fosters success in school and in life
