ADHD & Social Skills - Communication and Behavior

In this video, we will provide some understanding of social development in children with ADHD. It will include important strategies on how to meet your child's needs specifically during the transition to a brand new environment in middle school.

We cover and share resources, tools, and strategies that are recommended by leading experts in the ADHD field and that have been used by thousands of families to help aid both parents and kids living with ADHD. These tips can prove key to your child's adjustment to a new academic, social, and emotional period in their lives.

My team and I have researched extensively to provide parents, teachers, caregivers and families with helpful tools and strategies during this crisis.

In this series, we will be covering how social distancing and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can impact our children, how communication and behavior can look different for a child with ADHD, building and keeping successful relationships with parents and friends, and how social anxiety can impede the day-to-day life of a child with ADHD.

- Challenges with holding and contributing to conversations

- Your child's ability to organize their responsibilities and manage time

- A deficit in executive function skills

- Struggling to connect with other students
