Raising Socially Smart Tweens & Teens with ADHD

March 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Ryan Wexelblatt, LCSW

When kids with ADHD struggle socially, people often assume they are “missing social cues.” In truth, many kids and adolescents struggle due to lagging social executive function skills.

Social executive function skills power the “operating system” of social interactions. Thus, if your child struggles socially, we can be relatively sure they have lagging social executive function skills. This webinar will provide you with an understanding of the social executive function skills that cause the most trouble for kids with ADHD, why parents have the most important role in helping their child to improve social executive function skills, and what works and does not work to help build these skills.

In this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • How to recognize lagging social executive function skills in your child
  • How to differentiate social anxiety from lagging social executive function skills
  • What exercises and activities bolster social EFs in children and teens with ADHD
  • What hurts, rather than helps, kids’ social skills
  • How to guide without helicoptering as your child focuses on social EFs
