After a spring semester of remote learning — and no shortage of complications, challenges, and forgotten passwords for students with ADHD — schools are largely reopening in August and September. While each state is dictating its own reopening guidelines, many independent schools and public school districts will likely opt for some type of hybrid learning — a mix of in-person and online instruction. For kids who are alternative learners — those with ADHD, LD, ASD or anxiety — this new educational model, along with their ongoing worries about COVID, is increasing unease and uncertainty to new levels. How can you prepare your kids (and yourself) for an unusual back-to-school season that’s filled with novel transitions and uncomfortable change?
- How to set up daily routines that reduce conflict and build skills for independence
- How to deal with general anxiety and health and safety concerns.
- How to improve flexibility and cooperation
- How to address issues related to childcare and home learning
- How to advocate for the educational needs of your child or teen in this new academic environment
