Ep #159: Time management strategies I wish I‘d known as a child with ADHD

October 27, 2021

Many children--and-adults-with ADHD struggle with time management and need strategies that will set them up for success.

Children who can learn strategies can better transition to adulthood and be successful in work, school, and their personal lives. Children who don’t discover time management strategies will often struggle with substance abuse and failure in their work and personal lives.

Avoidance, procrastination, and distraction are all symptoms of ADHD and can be more comfortable for a person than getting things done or facing difficult situations. Those with ADHD often don’t like dealing with difficult feelings.

In this podcast, Parenting Coach Siope Kinikini, discusses his struggles with ADHD as a child and what strategies he has implemented that have been life-changing. 

The two strategies that both children and adults with ADHD can implement today are the time-boxing method and the SODAS Method. 

Because those with ADHD can have difficulty seeing the big picture or determining priorities, the time-boxing method helps them decide what they need to do. By visually seeing what needs to be done, they are more likely to do it, as those with ADHD often thrive once they begin.

The SODAS Method helps remove the emotion from situations and keeps them focused on the present. 

Using these two methods will help you or your child with ADHD play to strengths and find successful outcomes.
