The ADHD Solution Deck gives adults new insights into the minds and feelings of youth with ADHD, and offers practical, easy-to-use tools that foster more cooperation and reduce arguing.
The deck is divided into five themes to help parents and kids stay calm, and work together.
- Self-Control. Tools to manage your own feelings first so you can act effectively, and teach your child to do the same. - Compassion. Strategies to meet your child where they are, not where you expect them to be. - Collaboration. Learning to use a we attitude instead of a you should approach. - Consistency. Tips to aim for steadiness, without expecting perfection from you or your child. - Celebration. Reminders to recognize what is working, and providing on-going praise.
