Solutions at Home
Children with ADHD need parents to help them set up a system to get from the beginning of a project to the end.
-- Organize tasks. Help your child create a checklist of required tasks to help her keep track of where she is in the assignment process. Make copies of the checklist to keep in her binder and post in her room.
-- Label and color-code books, binders, and folders. All subjects should use the same color to keep paperwork organized.
-- Establish routines. Set up a routine specifically for getting assignments back to the teacher (for example, as soon as it's finished, it goes into a folder next to the front door).
-- Don't let your child procrastinate. He will likely need your help to get started on a task and see it through.
Some children desire more independence. Tell yours that she can earn the right to monitor her own work after demonstrating success for a few weeks.
