When it comes to big projects at work or home, we are used to phrases like, “How do you eat an elephant?” or “analysis paralysis.” In corporate America, there are whole careers devoted to managing projects. The truth is, getting started on tasks can be difficult for anyone… but it’s incredibly challenging for kids with ADHD. Because of their delayed executive functioning skills, getting started (even on simple tasks!) can feel totally overwhelming for them. In this episode, we provide simple tools to help your child with ADHD get started, whatever the task.
