As adolescents reach middle school and enter high school, they experience an increase in academic demands and expectations (class work and homework load, number of teachers and classes to juggle, organization of various activities). For adolescents with ADHD, the increase in demands and expectations of higher grade levels and, at times, the loss of academic support provided in elementary school may lead to a decline in grades or academic failure. Our program teaches specific strategies targeting academic improvement for most adolescents with ADHD. Moreover, parents and adolescents learn how to advocate for appropriate accommodations or other assistance at school.
This program is conducted with dyads of parents and their adolescents. Typically, no more than eight sets of parents and adolescents are enrolled at a time. The program consists of seven weekly sessions, 90 minutes each, taught in the late afternoon / early evening.
Yes. The parent will attend all sessions, while the adolescent will attend six of the seven sessions (one session is parents-only). In these sessions, parents and adolescents will work together to learn and apply specific strategies to improve the adolescent’s academic success with homework and in the classroom.
The strategies taught in this program are appropriate for adolescents who have a primary diagnosis of ADHD, who are between the ages of 12 to 15 (sixth through eighth grades) and who are experiencing academic difficulties.
This group is offered on an as-needed basis. To express your interest and sign up for this group, call the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology's Intake Office at 513-636-4336, option #.
