4. LOOK TO PRAISE. Share any positive comments you've heard from your child about the teacher, class, or classroom to set a constructive tone for the meeting.
5. STAY INFORMED. Talk with your child to see if he has any concerns about school -- related or unrelated to his ADHD. Look over recent assignments and tests, so you know what he is studying and how he is performing in class.
6. PLAN AHEAD. E-mail any concerns to the teacher in advance, if you want a thorough, thoughtful response.
