Helping School-Age Youth with Tourette Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Develop Organizational, Time Management, and Planning Skills

In this program, participants learn about the relationship between Tourette disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and gain understanding of the commonly associated challenges in learning, academic planning, and organization. Facilitators present parents and educators with strategies to guide students in improving assignment tracking; managing associated materials, including internet-based and online virtual learning materials; effectively managing time and scheduling; and engaging in systematic assignment planning. Practical strategies for students to manage stress, anxiety, and mood related to Tourette disorder and associated organizational skills difficulties are also reviewed. Additionally, participants get free access to a library of short videos illustrating organizational skills taught in the webinar, including time management, scheduling, planning, stress management, and relaxation skills. Educators and parents learn to recognize behaviors that may warrant further assessment or care, and learn about relevant and appropriate Tourette disorder and ADHD referrals and services.
