How can I help my child with ADHD adjust to the school sleeping schedule after summer?

ANSWER

If your child slept late during summer vacation, start waking him up a little earlier each day so he won't be groggy once school starts. Make bedtime a little earlier each night, too, so he gets enough sleep.
