Using Your Smarts!
Stay Calm, Take Breaks, Get Organized… these are some of the steps to achieving homework success with ADD/ADHD. Once you setup a routine to handle homework and the heat of a bad temper, it becomes easier.

Lead a path of excitement about learning and less about expectation because school work is not always a piece of cake. Many parents have forgotten how to do 5th grade math. So, it’s okay to take the opportunity to read the directions to homework with your child. These days, it’ll make you question, “Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader?”
