9 Tips for Using a School Planner Successfully

Children with ADHD who use a planner are more organized and earn higher grades. Here’s how to help your child use this essential tool for school.

Pick the Right Planner

The ideal paper planner will be thin, with a spiral binding to prevent pages from falling out, and a weekly page layout. A monthly planner may be overwhelming and unwieldy. Avoid bulky planners and leather covers. Make sure you choose one with enough space for writing down assignments: The younger the child, the larger their handwriting. Finally, look for a planner that has a pocket or sleeve attached at the back so that papers to and from the teacher can be kept together.
