The new year is a great time to turn over a new leaf. Keeping your New Year's Resolutions can be harder than making them, and that's probably especially true for anyone diagnosed with #ADHD, neurodiverse conditions, or who simply never developed executive function skills.
Perhaps looking back on 2023, you noticed some difficulty fulfilling basic responsibilities, managing your time, or organizing your life. These are executive functions.
Executive function skills are the basic toolset people draw on for success in school or at their job. ADHD directly affects an individual's ability to perform these tasks and learn these skills.
If you're struggling with executive function skills like keeping your attention on the task at hand or keeping track of your schedule, whether or not you are diagnosed with ADHD, there are methods for addressing these problems.
Here are three simple ways you can tackle the challenges and build your executive function skills.
Not everyone is going to find success with these on their own. But you don't have to do it all alone!
Whether you're a student trying to learn these behaviors, a parent of a student who struggles with their academics, or a professional working through these problems in the workplace, there are tutors and coaches dedicated to helping problem-solve executive skills.
If you're thinking about seeking help learning new executive function skills, talk to Dr. Jo Abramo for a free consultation to find out if executive function tutoring is the right choice for you.
