Date & Time: Tuesday December 14

Registration: Click Here to Register


Recommendations for children or adults with ADHD who want to optimize or improve their executive functions include:

Commit to doing an activity you really love that requires, trains, and challenges executive functions – it could be a practicing traditional martial art, performing with a band, or pursuing photography, dance, orienteering, gardening, etc. – try to push yourself outside your comfort zone.

Take steps to reduce stress in your life – for example, try to avoid stressful situations or defuse them, try to maintain a regular routine and put things in the same place so you can find them, follow a mindfulness or yoga practice, spend more time out in nature or with a pet, and remember that no one is perfect, so don’t be so hard on yourself.
