Topics will include: How parenting can help and hinder the young child growing up with ADHD; How modern tools and methodologies like the Getting Things Done (GTD) system, can help organize and track tasks to improve the lives of someone living with ADHD; How technology (tools/software/apps) can help with organization, self-awareness and self-discipline; How developing coping skills, discipline and self-advocacy are important to achieve personal growth and success.
