What is the theory behind this ADHD Focus Plan worksheet?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity is a common mental disorder that is diagnosed in early or late childhood. It is characterised by persistent restlessness, inability to concentrate and impulsive actions. People with ADHD are often in a constant hyperactive state which makes it difficult for them to focus on task completion no matter how easy or difficult the task may be. The ADHD focus plan is used in Cognitive Behavioral therapy to help people with ADHD plan and execute important tasks. 

How will the worksheet help?

The worksheet will provide a template of a focus plan that people with ADHD can use to plan, manage and execute their day to day tasks that are being neglected due to their condition. It will teach them important organisational and management skills that can help them throughout life. 

How to use the worksheet?

Instruct the client to describe the task that needs to be completed. Then break it down into smaller achievable tasks and estimate the time it would take to complete them before scheduling it within their day. Next comes the preparation stage to make sure all that they need is arranged beforehand. Write down expected obstacles and how to avoid them. Lastly, list the benefits of completing the task to serve as motivation.
