If so, when? And do what?Finding and befriending like-minded peers who share interests can be a challenge for children and teens with ADHD.

As parents, we know that there is a fine line between interfering and supporting, especially when it comes to friends. Too much support and we can interfere with development, not to mention possibly muddle all sorts of relationships.

Too little, and we leave a big, tangled web of social-skills development to kids who already struggle with executive function challenges.Weak executive functions and other ADHD challenges often trip up neurodivergent children and teenagers, but social skills can be learned at any age. Here, Caroline Maguire, M.Ed., PCC, will demonstrate the proven coaching processes that will help you engage with your child or teen to develop positive social behaviors from her groundbreaking book Why Will No One Play with Me? Maguire will present a specific process that will show parents how to engage children or teenagers in the social skills coaching process, learn how to teach a social skills lesson, and promote social problem solving through coaching.
