Back-to-school time incites anxiety for many children with ADHD or learning disabilities who struggle to meet others’ expectations for paying attention, sitting still, taking tests, following directions, making new friends, doing homework, and more. These students have tried behavior charts — and walked away with crushed spirits and poor self-esteem. So it’s no surprise that the very thought of another school year, may prompt your child to either melt down or shut down. And you feel helpless as a parent. Here’s how to head into this new school year with a game plan that bolsters everyone’s confidence.
