20 Great Accommodations for ADHD Students

You know your child best, so come to the IEP or 504 meeting armed with ideas for accommodations that can help her shine at school. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

For the Child Easily Distracted in Class

1. Seat your child in the front row

2. Seat your child away from doors and windows

3. Create a signal the teacher can use to get your child back on track (walking past the student’s desk and lightly tapping it)

4. Change the seats of children near your child

5. Receive daily reports on the subject matter that was covered in class, for review at night
