This week we focus on creating healthy routines for kids with ADHD.
Building routines with all children and teens is an essential element of helping them feel safe and calm. Routines can be especially valuable for those diagnosed with ADHD, or for folks that just need more help getting focused.
Below is a downloadable and customizable PDF from ADDitude Mag that lays out some structured routines that could make everyone’s day easier. Stay tuned next week for 10 Tips for Making Bedtime Easier (using routines, of course) and later in the month, Family Routines.

Until next week, Be Wise!
“I went home and practiced what Dr. Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
“Dr. Amy knows how to relate to children and make them feel comfortable. My son was shy in the beginning but Amy asked him a couple of questions about what he likes and immediately found a connection with him. He happily followed her into the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and performed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s because of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!”— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
“Dr. Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
