Today, we’re continuing our ADHD conversation with Jennifer Kampfe. We’re discussing specific strategies you can use to help your child manage their ADHD.

Jennifer’s Tips:

1. Learn as much as you can about ADHD.

2. Be discerning.

3. Adjust your expectations for your child and stop comparing them with their siblings or peers. Most ADHD children are 3-5 years behind their peers in executive functions and emotional maturity.

4. Routines are key for ADHD children. Jennifer has some great tips for how to create routines that help ADHD children thrive.
