Supporting Students With ADHD at Home

Preparing for the School Day

Share, Send, or Save

Children with ADHD may have trouble with organization. To help your child start off each day on the right foot, make sure your child prepares the night before:

  • Ask your child to review his or her student assignment book each night to make sure all of the materials needed (eg, books, projects) for the next day are brought back to school. If your child doesn't have a student assignment book, think about purchasing one. Consider including a supplies checklist in this assignment book.
  • Have your child pack his or her book bag and place it by the door every night, where it will be easy to find in the morning.
