Organizing Kids with ADHD
with Leslie Josel
Kids with ADHD are exponentially more likely to have poor planning and organization skills, part of their poor executive functioning. That’s something Leslie Josel of Order Out of Chaos knows all too well… as do I. This can be a constant battle for parents of kids with ADHD, but it doesn’t have to be. In this episode, Leslie and I discuss different organizational challenges of kids with ADHD, and what products, strategies, tools, training, and expectations parents can implement to make a positive difference with this struggle, both at school and at home. You will love Leslie’s energy and passion as she shares many valuable organizational strategies that work for organizationally-challenged kids with ADHD, including her own son, who’s now a successful college student (it is possible folks!).
