Planning/prioritization is the ability to create a road map to reach a goal or to complete a task. It also involves being able to make decisions about what’s important to focus on and what’s not important.
This can be tough for a lot of us with ADHD.
If the person has challenges with planning/prioritization they may find it hard to:
finish one task before starting another
complete a project with more than one step
break long-term projects or assignments into smaller tasks
create a time line for a project
make plans with friends and giving friends enough notice
know what needs to be done first in a task
know what needs to be done next, etc.
write an essay
create an outline
determine how much effort goes into an assignment
be prepared for upcoming events (athletic, academic, personal)
