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!

Write It Down!

Ask the teacher to give assignments in writing (or post them to the school's website), or check what the child has written himself, to ensure accuracy. Encourage him to keep a daily to-do list, and divide tasks into two groups according to priority: "Important" (do it now!) and "Less Important" (do it anytime).
