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.

Keep the Planner at Your Child’s Fingertips

Experts recommend that students keep their planner in the front pocket of their book bag or a binder that they carry to their classes. It should take no more than two small actions—reach and open—for your child to retrieve his planner. Have him keep a pen in the spiral binding to avoid the “pen hunt” that often causes kids to stop using a planner. Use a binder clip to mark the current page, so he can access it with one flip.
