ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s a medical condition in which a child or teenager gets easily distracted, has trouble focusing on a task, and acts too quickly without thinking things through. While the exact causes of ADHD are not fully understood, it is believed that certain factors play a role, such as genetics, exposure to environmental toxins, prematurity or low birth weight, and brain injury.
Kids and teens with ADHD will greatly benefit from continuous support from their parents, teachers, and care providers. Treatment usually involves a combination of medication (as prescribed by a professional) and cognitive therapy.
How Can Our ADHD Worksheets Help
These ADHD worksheets include learning resources for parents and professionals so they can understand why a child or teen behaves the way they do. We also provide handouts with various coping skills that will improve their executive functions, such as planning, emotional control, task initiation, and time management.
How to Use Our ADHD Worksheets
Our ADHD worksheets and handouts can benefit individuals in the following ways:
Many of our ADHD worksheets are fillable PDF files. This means they can be clicked and typed into directly on a device. This is convenient for distance learning and telehealth services.
Our ADHD worksheets can be used to highlight, or illustrate a specific mental health topic in the therapy room or classroom as part of a therapeutic lesson.
They provide visual and written engagement to support different modalities of learning, which can enhance traditional talk or play therapy.
They can be provided as homework to encourage individuals to be thoughtful about the lessons taught in the therapy room, practice the skills taught in the therapy room without the therapist’s support, use the handouts as engaging visual aids to post at home, and reference when they need a reminder to support their mental health, and review with parents, which allows parents and other caregivers an opportunity to support their children in using the skills they are learning.
When individuals return to the therapy room, the worksheets can be referenced multiple times throughout treatment to support long-term learning.
