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.

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.
