Does Your Child with ADHD Need Help with Homework?

Are you looking for ways to help your child or teen handle the daily struggle with homework? The struggle (theirs and yours) is real. It may look like a lack of motivation, or defiance, forgetfulness or even a learning disability but in reality, it is probably their Executive Function skills.

The Homework Help for ADHD covers seven Executive Function skills that have the biggest impact on homework and includes information on what to look for and plenty of strategies to help compensate.

Dads and ADHD Group Coaching

As a Dad, your needs will be different from a mom, whether you’re co-parenting or a single parent. Perhaps you’re a Dad who only gets limited time with your child and needs to understand how to improve your time with him or her. Or, maybe you have ADHD yourself and need help figuring out how to manage and balance the demands of your job and family, or you need help learning how to keep ADHD from negatively impacting your relationship with your child or significant other. This program focuses on what YOU need versus your child’s needs.

With this 4-week group coaching program, you’ll receive guided support and strategies to implement to improve the situation. Group coaching brings the benefit of hearing from other Dads and learning new solutions and strategies. Additionally, everyone will receive individual and group coaching from me over the course of the 4 weeks. 

  • Sessions are 90 minutes.
  • 4-week program.
  • Space is limited to 8 adults.

Thriving with ADHD in the Family Parent Class

Do you really understand what ADHD is and how it affects your child and your family? Often, parents receive the report back from a neuro-psych exam and it’s filled with facts about what is wrong, but what you really need to know is how to best help your child and your family be successful and happy.

Additionally, parents of a child with ADHD often struggle with frustration and overwhelm and are left wondering what more they can possibly do to make life better for their child and family. Without help, parents too often feel like they’re spinning because they simply do not know what additional actions they can take to improve daily life for the family or how to help their child have more success in school and life.

This 5-week class is focused on helping parents learn and understand …

  • What ADHD is and is not.
  • How Executive Function skills can impact your child’s ability to succeed.
  • What your child’s biggest challenges and frustrations are and how to help them better learn while instilling confidence and preserving family relationships.
  • How the right strategies help improve communication and cooperation, as well as organization, homework, self-regulation, and successful completion of daily tasks.
