Solutions at School
·Allow time to write down homework assignments. Teachers should post the day’s assignments on the board, and read them aloud to reinforce the information. If attention or language deficits make it hard for some kids to copy down the homework, give everyone a typed assignment sheet to take home.
·Establish "study buddies." Partner children so they can check each other's assignment books and make sure everything is correct and in the right place. At the end of the day, buddies can help each other pack up the planners and books they'll need at home.
·Create a "completed work" folder. This folder will serve as a reminder for what needs to go back to school. For kids who have trouble remembering their homework, include a sheet for parents to sign once the work is finished and packed in the child's school bag.
·Lighten the homework load. Children with ADD ADHD work slowly and are easily frustrated. Try cutting down their work load by assigning just the odd-numbered math problems for example. This way, the student can demonstrate what he's learned without being pushed too hard.
