Counseling Underachieving ADHD Teens
This is a 3 hour Zoom Presentation. CE's pending.
Many teens with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are not doing well in school. They do not write down assignments and forget that they have them. They are not doing their homework or turning it in. They procrastinate about projects and are trying to complete it the night before it is due. If they don’t know how to do the assignment they tend not to ask for help. All of these problems cause them to be in trouble with parents and teachers due to their poor grades. This presentation will present strategies that work to help these teens become successful at school, especially now with most teens having to participate in distance learning.
The neurological problems that lead to underachievement will be explained.
Participants will learn how to engage the underachieving teen
Participants will learn several strategies that will help the teen improve grades.
