High school

In preparation for the transition to college, it becomes important for adolescents to be able to implement organization, time-management, and planning skills themselves, with minimal parent and teacher support. Unfortunately, when adolescents don’t use these skills effectively, it can lead to missed homework, poor test grades and parent-adolescent conflict. Our research team is evaluating the impact of a group intervention designed to help parents of adolescents with ADHD promote the use of effective homework, organization and time-management skills. The intervention, Supporting Teens Academic Needs Daily (STAND), will be offered free to up to 80 families with an adolescent with ADHD (grades 8 – 12). The intervention consists of eight 90-minute meetings, held at a convenient location such as a local high school. If you are interested in receiving the intervention services, please call 804-828-5517.
