Webinar Description

Kids, teens, and young adults with ADHD can put parents (and therapists) in a bind—should they be given more oversight to ensure success or more freedom to learn on their own? Although kids and teens with ADHD have understandable desires for independence, the developmental delays in executive functions associated with ADHD can significantly impact their ability to do the right things at the right times. This then understandably evokes more oversight, restrictions, checking, and even criticism from parents. Unfortunately, well-intentioned lectures from parents (or therapists) and heartfelt promises from the child or teen don’t lead to the lasting change that everyone is hoping for.


By understanding how the executive function deficits impact daily functioning and how that makes certain family dynamics more likely, therapists will be able to help these families navigate the daily challenges more effectively in order to reduce conflict, foster understanding of ADHD, and support agency to prepare young adults for launching into college and beyond. This will take the therapist out of the middle of the endless tug of war-and give them a framework to help these families.
