SMART STRATEGIES FOR ADHD SYMPTOMS
ADHD students are just as smart as their peers — but sometimes, symptoms stop them from demonstrating their full potential. Here, we spotlight ADHD-specific problems that can get in their way — and their solutions:
FIDGETING Kids with ADHD have energy to spare. Follow these strategies to help her blow off steam — without disrupting other students.
FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS Your child isn’t defiant — he just struggles to keep up with complex instructions! Use these tips to ensure he does what he’s told.
LANGUAGE SKILLS Whether your child has a learning disability, or simply seems behind in language skills, follow these tips to help her express herself.
WORKING MEMORY Working memory — also known as short-term memory — is crucial during school. Help your child retain what she hears with these tools.
IMPULSE CONTROL Kids with ADHD don’t always think before they act. Teach the importance of rules by setting clear expectations and fair consequences.
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS If your child melts down during homework time (or loses assignments before turning them in), a simple routine can put him back on track.
