Teens with ADHD

About the event

Self-regulation challenges, heightened moodiness, social anxieties, and increased academic demands can intensify the pressure bearing down on middle and high school students with ADHD. With deficits in the areas of executive functioning and motivation, many teens become checked out and stressed out, frustrated by the constant struggle to keep up in class. These students appear unmotivated, and unwilling, to do class assignments and homework. Their refrain: Why bother?

This leads caregivers and educators to feel exasperated — unsure how to balance autonomy, support, and accountability for underperformance in their students. They want to motivate them to reach their potential, but they’re unsure how.

In this webinar, caregivers and educators will learn:

  • How the biology of ADHD impacts motivation and executive functioning in adolescents and teens
  • How to help students adopt self-motivation strategies and lifelong skills to manage their ADHD
  • Practical approaches that teens with ADHD can follow to compensate for executive functioning challenges
  • How to set goals to develop a teen’s self-confidence, and how to find a niche in which they can be successful and achieve autonomy from adults
