Executive functions is a fancy term that describes the skills needed for planning, organization, time management, getting started, persisting and completing tasks and monitoring our behaviour and performance.
Individuals with AHD have trouble with executive functions and we see this show up in the difficulties they have on a daily basis. Arriving late for school or appointments, forgetting to hand in assignments – or complete them, failing to follow instructions, blurting out comments in class, and unfinished tasks. Sound familiar?
In this podcast, listeners will learn about executive functions and how they are impaired in individuals with ADHD. Parents will learn strategies to help their child with difficulties in executive function. A great podcast for learning strategies for planning, organizing, managing emotions, shifting attention and being flexible, getting started on tasks and organizing your belongings.
