ADHD Procrastination Tips

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing important tasks in favor of less urgent or more enjoyable activities, despite the potential consequences. While everyone procrastinates occasionally, research suggests that individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may be more prone due to the symptoms they experience. It’s important to note that procrastination is not an officially recognized symptom of ADHD in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

The ADHD Procrastination Tips handout helps clients break the cycle of procrastination and get things done more effectively. It introduces the STARTT acronym to help them initiate tasks and the INSPIRED acronym to boost motivation. Each letter in these acronyms represents a step with clear examples. Although the intention of this handout was to support clients with ADHD, it can be used as a resource for anyone struggling with procrastination.

Understanding and addressing procrastination using this handout may lead to improved academic performance among students. Parents can offer additional support by helping them set specific, achievable goals.

This handout is included in our 29-page ADHD Handouts Bundle, which provides a wide variety of tips and strategies that encourage kids to better manage ADHD symptoms.
