ADHD Coping Skills for Teens

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Teens dealing with ADHD find it challenging to manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and can sometimes get in conflict with others. Thankfully, there are coping skills that can help many teens do well in school and achieve success.

This ADHD Coping Skills for Teens handout discusses the executive functions that are impaired in ADHD and provides a list of tips to manage symptoms. It's a handy resource for teens, providing support in starting tasks, remaining focused, staying calm, remembering things, and taking positive steps in their lives.

Teens with ADHD who practice these coping skills during stressful times can benefit by improving their attention, focus, and emotional balance. Teens can picture turning these ADHD coping skills into a game called "Focus Challenge." In this game, they set a timer and see how well they can concentrate on a task without getting distracted.

After reading the handout, they can implement what they learned into their daily lives, whether at home or in school.
