Managing Middle School

"How can I help my sixth-grade daughter adjust to middle school? She is having trouble managing a locker and staying organized."

by Sandy Maynard


Middle school is an organizational dilemma for an ADHD kid, who finds herself dealing with multiple classrooms and teachers, a locker, and more homework. Start by making sure her teachers know that she is being treated for ADHD and struggles with organization. Enlist their help, and try the following.

Also, talk to your daughter about advocating for her own needs. If she has trouble following class material, she should raise her hand and ask questions.
