ADDitude Shares "The Homework System that really works" for Kids With ADHD
ADDitude Magazine has a great article about the importance of routines to help replace after-school tantrum among children and tweens with ADHD.
Some of the highlights from the article include:
1. Ensure students have time to write down their homework assignments in class.
2. Establish "study buddies," when possible. They can check each other's assignment plans and ensure they pack all their needed books and planners.
3. Create a folder to hold completed work.
4. Have a designated homework time.
5. Create a designated homework spot.
6. Schedule breaks.
7. Praise efforts and/or allow students to earn special privileges.
8. Recognize the child or tween's "saturation point."
