In Module 3, parents learn to develop and maintain a consistent household schedule and daily routines for their child and themselves. All children benefit from consistency, but children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be especially reactive when their environment is unpredictable or chaotic. External structure can scaffold the child with ADHD’s own sense of organization. In many families, parents of children with ADHD struggle with executive function or attention difficulties themselves. Teaching parents to implement a consistent daily schedule and to more effectively manage their time can reduce the parental stress that can contribute to harsh or negative parenting and poor parent–child relationship. In this module, you will work with parents on the basics of scheduling and time management, with the goal of creating a more organized and harmonious household.
