January 3, 2022: ” Launching into Young Adulthood” by Chris Dendy

The quantum leap from high school into young adulthood and the work world can be especially challenging for teens with ADHD and LD. Scientific evidence indicates that ADHD can result in up to a three- to five-year delay in brain maturation and executive functioning skills. Consequently, many young people with ADHD and LD may not be developmentally ready to meet the demands of this transition. Many key executive skills that are critical for success in middle and high school are also essential for success in the work world. This session offers guidance regarding strategies you can use now to provide the foundation for teens and young adults to launch successfully into the work world.
