Why Doesn’t My Child Study? Smart Skills For Student Success

Does your student know HOW to study or use a study guide the right way? Or are they using old study techniques that don’t really work for them? If they’re just rereading their notes and thinking they’re done – especially with ADHD — there are some REAL skills for them to acquire. Leslie Josel has some tried and true methods to help kids prepare for exams and tests, 3 key ingredients to effective studying, and a ONE-word shift to get “study buy-in” (seriously, we ALL need that!) — so you can kick off a new school season with success!

Dr. Nerissa Bauer

ADHD & More:
A Doctor's View from the Front Lines

Dr. Nerissa Bauer is a behavioral pediatrician, creator of TEACH ME ADHD and host of the Let’s Talk Kids Health LIVE show. She received her MD degree from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2000 and then went to the University of California, San Diego to complete her pediatric residency training. She then completed a one year clinical fellowship with Dr. Martin Stein focusing on developmental-behavioral pediatrics. 
She moved to Seattle, Washington in 2004 and pursued a Masters of Public Health at the University of Washington. While there she started a foster care clinic and realized that there was still so much to learn when it comes to supporting families. She had the honor of being mentored by Carolyn Webster-Stratton, developer of the Incredible Years, and it was then Dr. Bauer learned basic child management techniques they don’t teach you in medical school. 
Dr. Bauer took a faculty position at Indiana University School of Medicine. Under the guidance of Dr. Webster-Stratton, Dr. Bauer went on to adapt the Incredible Years model to teach future pediatricians how to incorporate this skillset into primary care. She eventually started doing more health services research and stayed in academia for 13 years before burning out. 
In 2019, she took some time off and then started a behavioral pediatrics part time practice in Indianapolis, Indiana. She then took the leap into entrepreneurship and started creating innovative courses for families to take together, TEACH ME ADHD; offered a parenting book club on Facebook; and also became the host of Let’s Talk Kids Health LIVE, a weekly show dedicated to breaking down stigma around parenting and pediatric mental health.
She lives in Carmel, Indiana with her husband, her two children and two golden retrievers. She remains active with the American Academy of Pediatrics as a spokesperson for developmental and behavioral topics. 

ADHD & More: A Doctor’s View from the Front Lines

Want some insight into the trends in pediatric mental health care today? There’s no better doc to offer perspective than Developmental Pediatrician, Dr. Nerissa Bauer! With essential issues to discuss like ADHD in Girls (and the importance of timely identification), drug shortages (and how to work with your doctor) and strategies to engage your child in their ADHD care plan, this conversation is both timely and foundational.

that Make Parenting Easier

 A former teacher, mental health counselor, and principal, Brendan helps individuals, families, schools, and businesses manage the challenges of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety, and neurodiversity through an approach that blends education, collaborative problem-solving, and accountability with compassion, humor, a focus on strengths and growth, and his trademark “Wall of Awful™” model.

Fundamental Assumptions that Make Parenting Easier

It’s easy to get caught up in the stresses of raising a neurodiverse child. Often those stresses lead to conflict, often because of unhelpful assumptions like “My kid doesn’t care.” “My kid is lazy.” “My kid refuses to listen.” Luckily, there are better assumptions. Assumptions that lead to better outcomes. In this conversation, we’ll explore alternative assumptions that serve you and your family better so you can reduce stress and improve life for the whole family.

Seth Perler

Executive Function Tips
to Do WITH Your Kids

Seth Perler is a well-known Executive Function Coach, educator, vlogger, and guy who cares about seeing outside-the-box kids succeed. This means that he helps struggling, neurodiverse learners turn it around in a baffling system so they can launch a successful future. His weekly blog, gives parents and teachers game-changing answers in a sea of misguided educational fluff.
If you want to help a student who struggles with homework, grades, procrastination, overwhelm, underachievement, time-management & motivation, then understanding this “Executive Function”  thing is critical.

There’s no instruction book for how to help a child navigate school & life. Traditional interventions often fail because they don’t get to the root of a child’s problems and they’re often based on misunderstanding, misinformation and outdated paradigms. Consequently, a child’s patterns get worse each year, leading to pervasive difficulties transitioning into adulthood. That’s the opposite of what education should do, and the sooner we get the facts about Executive Function, the better.

Parents often feel helpless, watching their child drown in school, as they spin their wheels trying to help. There’s no time to waste, life isn’t a dress rehearsal. Parents want tools that are 1) practical, 2) that demystify the problem and 3) that consider a child’s unique needs. It’s simple but not easy. It’s all about Executive Function and many of Seth’s students are 2e or Twice-exceptional.

PS. Seth also runs TEFOS, The Executive Function Online Summit and it is excellent.  Learn more here.

Executive Function Tips to Do WITH Your Kids
Executive function skills are at the core of everything we do. So when kids have challenges with executive function, it can make ‘doing’ things difficult. But there are things that parents can do — WITH your kids — to improve executive function skills. Yes, even if you’re thinking, “but my kids don’t want to do anything with me.” Give  Seth Perler a chance to set you on a path to enjoying time with your kids and improving their executive function skills, all at the same time!

Diagnosing ADHD: Does it HAVE To Be So Complicated?

For decades, as a process-of-elimination diagnosis without a specific test, medical providers have had to rule out many other conditions to make an ADHD diagnosis. Even psychological testing, often considered a ‘gold standard,’ relies on clinical interpretation of results. With long waiting lists and complicated forms to complete, the process can be challenging and frustrating for parents. Now, as scientific understanding of ADHD has improved, evidence-based research has begun to offer alternative perspectives on ADHD diagnosis. In this conversation, two seasoned experts come together to unravel the intricacies, debunk myths, and offer their glimpse into the future of ADHD diagnosis.

ENCORE BONUS —Child Questionnaire to help parents and teachers find children with possible inattentive ADHD – PDF

Even if your child has already been diagnosed with ADHD, printing out the Child Questionaire and sharing it with an elementary school teachers, counselor or principal will help more children to be identified in the future. You can be part of the solution by creating more awareness of inattentive ADHD.

The Elephant in the Room: Making Thinking Easier for People with ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder… clearly the condition is a deficit of attention; right? Its name says so, and behavior seems to support the label! ADHD is actually an executive function impairment. Self-regulation is a major executive function. In the end, ADHD is a focus issue; however, more often than not, the root cause of the challenge is thinking. We use working memory to problem-solve inside our head. Working memory is an executive function. The focus of this talk will be on understanding working memory and how to make thinking easier to improve focus, but not to dwell on focus alone.

Many neurodivergent kids struggle with wanting something to be right so much that it becomes difficult to start tasks, assignments and projects or complete them. Although perfectionism can be motivating, it can keep students over-focused on the end result and not the process of getting there. This leads to increased anxiety, shame, and stress. In this session, Dr. Sharon Saline will provide you with practical tools for changing the unreasonable standards that kids set for themselves, their negative comparisons to others and frustrating patterns of procrastination. With these resources, they can accept themselves as they truly are–perfectly imperfect.

Is Your Child’s Thinking Brain Offline?

Is your kiddo stuck in survival mode? Are they emotionally dysregulated more often than you might realize? When a kid’s thinking brain is ‘offline,’ they can’t process language or think clearly, and you can’t get through to them no matter how hard you try or how much you reason. It’s time to think in terms of co-regulating instead of co-escalating, and figuring out what’s leading to their stuckness … so you can begin to address it, one event at a time. Whether your kids are yelling or shutting down, or anything in between, this is an important lesson (or reminder) for all of us!

Making Social and Emotional Well-Being Stick

Sometimes when we think about helping kids learn how to navigate the social world, we think about teaching them specific things to do in a social situation such as saying “please” or “thank you” or giving direct eye contact. But we forget to talk about what works best for the child and also how to help them regulate so that they can navigate the situation at hand. When this happens, our children can often feel like they can’t do anything right. Speech and language pathologist Elizabeth Sautter describes how teachers and parents can become detectives and a kind of social and emotional ‘coach’ for kids — helping with regulation and setting them up for success with all kinds of social dynamics.
