11 Ways to Get Your ADHD Child Organized for School

ADHD children have impaired executive function, leading to forgotten papers, missed deadlines, and perpetually messy desks. Punishment won't fix the problem; a great organization system might!

Choose the Right Supplies

ADHD and LD kids may have motor-skills difficulties that make handwriting a challenge, so provide an assignment notebook or planner with larger-than-usual spaces in which to write. If your child tends to cram and stuff papers in her backpack and binder, add pocket-type inserts where she can slip papers, or give her an accordion folder.
