ONLINE VIDEO: Motivating the Unmotivated Student - Guest Expert Dr. Ari Tuckman
Dr. Ari Tuckman is one of the leading experts on ADHD and motivation. In this online video, Dr. Tuckman addresses critical issues related to motivating students.
Unmotivated kids and teens cause enormous stress for parents. Even though we can clearly see trouble coming a mile away, nothing we say or do can convince them to take action. Students with ADHD or Executive Dysfunction are even more likely to struggle with motivation particularly when it comes to schoolwork or performing household responsibilities. How can parents light the fire of motivation in their child without getting into a maddening tug-of-war or creating a police-like state?
National ADHD expert, Dr. Ari Tuckman shares an approach that will help lighten your parental workload while giving your student more of the freedom and responsibility they want and the life skills they need to have.
First, we begin by learning how to grease the rails — to create a work environment and pick targeted strategies so that your student will be focused on the right things at the right times and in the right manner. Dr. Tuckman discusses tools to help your student build their motivation muscle including teaching them how to "feel the future" as opposed to giving in to the distractions of the moment. He also shows us how to replace less effective parental interventions with more productive strategies to tap into your student’s motivation to increase their agency and decrease your micromanaging.
Topics in this 1-hour video include:
- Why many teens struggle with motivation — and especially those with ADHD and Executive Dysfunction.
- Understanding how attention gets hijacked and why prevention is more effective than willpower.
- How to “feel the future” more in order to increase motivation in the present so your student actually uses these strategies.
And so much more...
