Many students with ADHD find that focusing on big goals for the New Year seems unattainable because turning intentions into actions is often a challenge.

But building specific strategies, rather than trying to keep up with (sometimes) unrealistic New Year’s resolutions, can help students with ADHD stay focused and motivated for the second half of the school year.

This approach can empower K-12 students and make a huge difference in personal and academic outcomes. Routines, habits, and goals help children build essential life skills, including planning ahead, staying organized, and doing it without a fight.

In this webinar, author, educator, and CHADD’s Attention magazine advisory board member, Ann Dolin, MEd, will share practical tips and strategies to help your child develop a plan and the know-how to get it done in 2023.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • Strategies to increase your child’s focus, productivity, and perseverance
  • How to use powerful questions instead of telling kids what to do to foster independence and responsibility
  • Simple ways to create daily routines that can make a big difference in getting and staying organized
  • Research-based ways to prevent the disconnect between what a parent sees as the problem and the areas a child is willing to accept help
  • How to help resistant children overcome roadblocks and achieve what they set out to do
