AD/HD Adult Group, Education and Effective Skill Building
- PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE to the Third Tuesday of the Month!!
- We will still meet at the Temescal Library.
- Downstairs to the left of the front door. At the bottom of the stairs the meeting is in the large room to the right.
- This month we will talk about Planning Ahead using the already prepared Holdiay Calendar.
- In the Planning Ahead Meeting we'll cover:
- chunking down, baby steps
- looking for what's missing
- going over the production cycle of imagine, initiate, production (which includes finding the mistakes and recommitting to the plan) and finally completion where 'no job is finished until the paperwork is filed'.
- To look at planning we'll use the 'Holiday Calendar' which I've organized up for the attendees for the last four years. The Calendar runs from Sept. 1 to Jan 1, 2014 and looks at 'back to school', the major holidays, 3 and 4 day weekends. Monthly spending planning for the various holidays are included on as well as limiting the scope of work one person can possibly take on. The Calendar also includes previous years' meeting attendees suggestions.
- Another slant on Planning Ahead is the skill of looking backward to the past week, and forward to the coming week(s) to help train us to look further into the future and anticipate what might come up or what we would like to have come up!
- Look for the calendar on this site in the near future before out meeting date!
- Cheers! See you there.
- Please join our monthly ongoing group for adults who live with AD/HD. Our group focuses on education and identifying skills and strategies that improve our daily lives. We have a mix of dynamic speakers and workshops on creating less chaos and more joy.
- Information, tips, tools, strategies and educational materials will be available. Invited speakers work with AD/HD adults in different professional capacities. Fellow members contribute useful strategies and share their insights of what works and what doesn't.
- In this uplifting and even fun atmosphere we break from isolation and form community and support.
