Assistive Technology for ADHD and Executive Functioning Disorders
Join Joan Green of Innovative Speech Therapy and The Chesapeake Center’s Dr. Kathleen Nadeau as they discuss how ADHD impacts more than just our attention and focus. At its core, ADHD is a deficiency in Executive Function skills. Those with ADHD lack the ability to organize thoughts and activities, prioritize tasks, manage time efficiently, and make decisions.
Lacking the normal structure of school and work, both children and adults have struggled to analyze, plan, organize and complete tasks at all– or on a deadline. They misplace materials, prioritize the wrong things, get overwhelmed by big projects… the list goes on.
BUT- technology can make our lives easier!
You don’t know what you don’t know, and our goals it to inform listeners of certain apps and other technologies to help with impulsivity, transitions/ reminders, planning and scheduling and more.
