9 Secrets to a Super Effective School Planner

Children with ADHD who use school planners are more organized and earn higher grades. But only if they use them correctly. How to help your child make the most of this essential tool.

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.
