Anxiety in kids with ADHD

ADHD combined with anxiety can be challenging to treat because of executive functioning difficulties with self-directed talk. I used a cognitive behavioral approach combined with executive functioning strategies to help kids understand that anxiety always comes up and goes down. I was using this with a fourth grader to help him understand what using his “Inner Coach” sounds like at different phases through the anxiety curve.
