Parents of children with attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD) should do more than listen, nod, and smile during a parent-teacher conference.

We are an equal and essential part of the equation, and we should actively participate, especially when the conversation turns to school accommodations.

The following tips will help you make the most of your meeting time:

1. BE ON TIME. The teacher has to schedule conferences one after the other. Being late wastes your time — and suggests to the teacher that you're not taking the meeting seriously.

2. STAND UNITED. Whenever possible, both parents should attend the meeting. Showing up together demonstrates your commitment to your child's education.
