As the parent of a child with ADHD, I know you want to help them achieve more. There are a few key items to keep in mind when helping your him or her.
- What goals do you have for your child?
- What goals does your child have?
- Please remember that the second question here is more important to ask than the first. Especially as your child gets older, you need to pay attention to their own personal goals.
- Make sure those goals are SMART – specific, measurable, attainable, results oriented, timely.
CONNECT with your child’s teacher
- Visit Families with Purpose to read my article on how to CONNECT for better parent / teacher relationships.
Homework and Organization Strategies
- Develop strategies that help your student remember their homework – both doing it and turning it in to the teacher.
- Help your child learn how to plan projects.
- Organize at home in a way that works for your student and that works for you. A backpack landing spot is key!
- Join me for a teleseminar on October 27th from 1-2:30pm. Turmoil to Tranquility: Help Students with ADHD Achieve More.
- Remember, ADHD is a neurobiological challenge. Learn more at Dr. Russell Barlkey’s website.
