Parenting the Child with Executive Function and ADHD Challenges

Posted by | Aug 17, 2012

Learning Disabilities Association of York Region (LDAYR) and Evoke Learning Presents a workshop for students

Life with a child with ADHD and/or executive function challenges can be frustrating and overwhelming, but as a parent there is a lot you can do to help control and reduce the symptoms. You can help your child overcome daily challenges, channel his or her energy into positive arenas, and bring greater calm to your family. The earlier and more consistently you address your child’s challenges, the greater chance they have for success.  Children with ADHD often have deficits in executive function: the ability to think and plan ahead, organize, control impulses, and complete tasks. As a parent, this means you may need to provide extra guidance while your child gradually acquires executive skills of his or her own.
