ADHD HOLIDAY SURVIVAL GUIDE
ADHD holiday survival guide.
The holidays are hectic. And if your child has ADHD, it can create extra challenges. Here are some tips to make the season easier to manage.
You don’t have to accept every invitation you get. If your child gets antsy or overexcited, just go to the most important events. The family gathering at Grandma’s house might be a must.

1. Don’t stop the medication
2 Select some NOT all holiday events.
3 Head-up before events
4 House rules apply
5 Give feedback frequently
6 Chill time and space.
7 Bag of “tricks” on standby
