The Distance Learning Guide for ADHD Families presents a comprehensive plan for the school year — whatever that may look like — filled with expert advice and concrete tips to help your family adapt and thrive amid the new normal.
“For children with ADHD, transitions and change are particularly disruptive. New routines and expectations tax their executive functions. A lack of social and physical interaction with peers saps their motivation. And a new reliance on personal time management breeds quick frustration. If you’re at a loss, and fear that your child may be losing important academic ground, here’s my advice for you…”
“The school’s legal obligation to provide appropriate accommodations has not changed during the switch to remote learning, although the U.S. Department of Education has advised that ‘exceptional circumstances could affect how a particular service is provided.'”
“If the time you devote to learning at home is focused, you don’t need to spend seven hours a day on school work. More is accomplished when teaching happens one-on-one, so learning goals can be met more quickly. Plus, there are fewer interruptions at home and transitions require less time.”
