When parents and educators work together on behalf of a student, everyone benefits — especially the student. The key for parents: Play the role of supporter and advocate for their child, while not becoming an adversary of the teacher. The last thing you need is a teacher who feels threatened by parental involvement.

Teachers, remember that parents have valuable, insightful, and comprehensive knowledge about their child — and his or her ADHD. You are the expert in the curriculum or subject content; Mom and Dad are the experts in the child. Working together in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation ensures that your child will reach his or her potential — and the new school year will be smooth, calm, and successful.
