Better Behavior at School: Help Teachers Manage Your Child's Distractions and Impulsivity

Share these winning strategies with your child's teachers to keep your student focused and on his best behavior in the classroom.

Set a Clear Routine

Let kids know where they are in the day. Write the day’s schedule on the blackboard, and erase items as they are completed. Alert the class in advance if there are revisions. Use a timer to help transitions between activities, and give five- and two-minute warnings, so ADHD kids have time to stop doing one thing and start another. This gives ADHD students a sense of control over their day.
