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.

In this episode, learn:

  • How parents can help teachers understand their children — academically, socially, and emotionally
  • How to foster parent-teacher teamwork and communication
  • ADD-friendly school strategies for addressing a child’s symptoms in the classroom
  • Best practices for productive parent-teacher meetings
  • How to enhance a child’s self-esteem while also supporting school rules, policies, and goals
