How can I help my child with ADHD do better in school?

ANSWER

When your child does homework, make sure he or she is:

• Seated in a quiet area without clutter or distractions 

• Has clear instructions   • Encouraged to write each assignment in a notebook as it is given by the teacher   • Responsible for his or her own assignments   • Well-hydrated and fed; a snack break can do wonders for helping to sustain attention. Favor healthy snacks and drinks.
