In most cases, these students have an overflow of creative ideas — children with ADHD are known for their inspiring imaginations, after all — but they often struggle when it comes to getting these magical ideas onto paper.
This “ADHD writer’s block” is for a number of reasons: children with ADHD have difficulty picking essay topics, locating appropriate resources, holding and manipulating information in their memory, organizing and sequencing the material, and getting it down on paper — and that’s all before they’ve forgotten what it was they wanted to say!

- Classroom solutions to guide the writing process
- When and how to implement accommodations
- High-tech writing helpers for kids with ADHD
