Your Free Back-to-School Playbook

You and your child with ADHD want this to be the best year yet — and it can be. This back-to-school guide includes behavior help, reading and writing strategies, social skills 101, plus more!

September can be fraught with anxiety as you ready yourself and your child for the next nine months of school. But it is also a time of beginnings. To help you start the school year right, we’ve talked to parents, teachers, and other professionals and asked: What’s your best advice?

From Susan Schwartz, of the Child Mind Institute, we learned how to build your child’s reading skills—whether he’s six or 16. Because homework can be such a headache for families with ADHD, we’ve found good advice in Quirky Kidsby Drs. Perri Klass and Eileen Costello on turning it into a manageable task. And we didn’t forget the social skills kids need; see Dr. Carol Brady’s piece on recess.

Whatever your worry, this guide has it covered with advice and tips for:

  • Working with teachers on accommodations
  • Advocating for your ADHD child
  • Setting up school-day ADHD meds
  • Reading and writing strategies
  • Classroom behavior tips
  • Developing social skills
  • Back-to-school resources
