Between school, homework, after school activities, family activities and maybe even a job, it often feels like it is hard to “fit it all in,” or “get it all done.” Your attention is being pulled in too many directions. Sometimes it is hard to pay attention at all. You might find yourself feeling overwhelmed, forgetting homework or other important tasks.
Does this sound like a day in the life of a high school or college student?
You are not alone. Many teens and young adults have difficulty balancing all the demands that are put on them. And while having ADHD is associated with many positive traits, you also know and experience some of the challenging traits every day. ADHD coaching can help you discover your strengths and create supports, structures and strategies so that you can be at the top of your game.
Some goals students have worked on in the past:
- Developing an understanding of how ADHD is effecting their lives.
- Learning about themselves; what is really important to them, strengths, learning styles.
- Having better time and task management so work gets done.
- Having better organization skills so that assignments are started, completed, and handed in on time.
- Developing strategies to maintain focus in the classroom while reducing distractions.
- Creating systems so that car keys, notebooks, cell phones and homework are easily found.
- Prioritizing school and social responsibilities.
