Accessible resources on ADHD management
August 26, 2013 1:56 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for resources about managing ADHD for people with ADHD that would be accessible to a highly literate, intelligent 11 year old. I'm thinking books, videos, etc that provide specific strategies for managing daily life. Kid already has medical management, professional support, medication, and loyal and loving community. But at this point, she has a lot of responsibilities that she needs to be beginning to take the lead on herself, and she needs more tools for managing those responsibilities - things like bedtime routine, schoolwork, navigating social relationships, etc.

Unlikely to be useful (given that she is 11, already diagnosed, and on medication that is as effective as any is going to be at this point):
- stuff focused on self-diagnosis
- stuff focused on medication options or medication generally
I'm really just looking for places she can learn specific tips on how to manage daily responsibilities and longer term planning when you're ADHD. The more specific and practical, the better.
