Your child struggles to stay organized, and none of your tried-and-true strategies work. Your child can’t self-monitor or stay on-task during homework, and he does not appreciate your reminders. Your child’s motor coordination is weak, and you feel powerless to help.

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Attention disorders can cause children to feel out of sync with the challenges of school, home, and of mastering life skills. These struggles can lead to stress, anxiety, and poor self-esteem.

As a parent, you may be using lots of therapies — coaching, counseling, working with tutors, medication — to manage your child’s symptoms. Occupational therapy should be one of them. OT improves the skills kids need for daily living and gives them the confidence to succeed in life. What’s more, parents can use OT strategies at home to help their children thrive.
