A Parent’s Guide to Delayed Adulthood with ADHD

May 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


EXPERT: Anthony L. Rostain, M.D., M.A.

Intensive parenting now extends from childhood into young adulthood as some individuals with ADHD take longer on their journey to independence than do their peers. Some parents assume the roles of financial and career advisor, emotional support cheerleader, and sounding board for their young adult children. And with the increasing rates of anxiety and depression among adults ages 18 to 34, some parents might add mental health counselor to their list of ongoing roles.

In this webinar, Anthony Rostain, M.D., will offer practical advice to parents who are struggling to support their 20-something kids during the prolonged transition known as emerging adulthood. He will address what has made it harder for young people to mature, and how to adapt to this protracted dependence on parental support.

In this webinar, caregivers will learn:

  • How “delayed adulthood” has become the new normal for many American young adults and how parents can adjust to this new reality
  • How to rethink assumptions and biases that may interfere with healthy parent-young adult relationships
  • How to develop better communication skills with young adults with ADHD and related disorders
  • How to help young adults overcome executive function difficulties that may interfere with their ability to gain self-sufficiency, autonomy and effective problem-solving
  • How to identify and address excessive digital media usage in young adults with ADHD and related disorders
