How many times have you asked them to pick up their toys or tidy their room? Why do they leave homework assignments or getting ready to leave the house to the very last minute? How is it they can read for hours or play video games but not do the simple task you asked them to do? Nagging or punishment for not doing the task only seems to make things worse – and the next time it happens all over again! The ADHD brain is wired differently, so often it’s not just knowing what needs to be done that is important, but how and sometimes why it needs to be done. Explore the different elements of task engagement that affect ADHD, how to identify what is getting in the way, and ideas for ways to tackle the problem.
