7 Secrets to Engaged Online Learning for Students with ADHD; Tip #4
Continuing our series from ADDitude Magazine's tips on how to help your child with ADHD stay motivated to finish school work during distance learning, we're sharing Tip #4: Personalizing the writing process.
Whether it's required or just helpful, some children benefit from creating a writing and editing checklist (e.g., with capitals, punctuation, introduction, examples, etc.).
