What impact does ambiguity have on motivation and procrastination? You might be surprised at the answer. Think about it. If you don’t know what to do, isn’t it more productive to do something else, or just escape to play Xbox? Ambiguity comes from a lack of clarity because you just don’t know or because you can’t hold it in your working memory. These challenges impact adults but have a greater impact on ADHD kids who have not developed problem-solving skills and whose executive functioning brains aren’t as developed. Join us for insight to understand motivation and procrastination through the lens of ambiguity and how ADHD children can thrive when they gain clarity. We’ll share mindsets to help you help your kids.
