The Best ADHD Planner? One That Actually Gets Used

Students and adults with ADHD face the same challenge: Devising a planner system and habit that they can actually maintain over the long run, improving memory, punctuality, and stress — just to name a few. This is a daunting prospect, but it can be done. Get started with these 3 steps.

3 Comments: The Best ADHD Planner? One That Actually Gets Used

  1. I find the bullet journal works best for me for a monthly and daily planner. I can set it up and adjust it for how my brain works best. I also adjust over time as things change, I can have one week simple and then creat a big week spread for a heavier week.

    I only have mild ADHD myself though. I first learnt about the ‘BuJo’ through Jess on her YouTube channel, How to ADHD.

    I think the first step above is something I will try though, as well as getting the regular car stuff logged as reminders.

  2. My middle school son also has dysgraphia and hates writing. We’re introducing Google Calendar. We’ve also found alarms and reminders on Alexa have been a big help. It saves us from nagging him through his routine in the mornings.

  3. My teen son has dysgraphia and hates writing things down in his planner but he’s been more successful in using his iPhone’s calendar and reminders. (I have mild ADHD myself and use a combination of electronic tools: Calendar, Reminders, and Evernote.) He has a new IEP teacher to help him with homework and organizing this year, so we’ll see what happens.

    Anyone else have a HS student who’s successful with electronic tools?
