ADHD and Executive Function Skills for Success: Time Blindness, Make It Out the Door on Time
Getting out the door on time can be a source of stress for ADHD learners, other learners with special needs, kids who find executive function challenging, and their families. In this one time course we will evaluate strategies to help with time management. Students will learn to better manage their routines and time so they can better meet commitments.

An optional "Time Journal" will be shared before class where students can record the time it takes to do various morning activities. An after class e-mail will include some extension activities like making a morning playlist, or creating a "staging area" for school materials.
Handouts that will be used in class will be posted in the Outschool classroom. Please print these out if you can. Colored pens or pencils, post-it notes, and something to write with are always helpful in many of my Outschool classes.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Since this is a class for ADHD learners, subjects such as 504 plans, Individual Education Plans, and the use of medication to manage ADHD may come up. In terms of medication, I always address this when it is mentioned by saying that it can be very effective to help learners manage their ADHD, but different families handle this differently. I also mention other ways to manage ADHD such as exercise and structure. This class does not constitute therapy, but rather provides executive function support and the opportunity to connect and problem solve with other ADHD Learners.
This class is inspired by a video by Jessica McCabe of the channel How to ADHD entitled "How to (Actually) Get Out the Door on Time"
