How to model prioritization, self-monitoring, and organization skills for your children with ADHD.
As the parent of a child with ADHD, I am acutely aware of the executive functioning skills your child needs to achieve attention, organization, and timely completion of schoolwork. Yet, over the last week, while trying to balance the multiple details of my three kids’ lives and prepare for the holidays, I’ve realized that my own executive functioning skills are in high demand, too.

So, what are these skills that we need to better manage our children? And, how can we model them for our kids?
