  • Starting School with ADHD

    School starts up again soon and with ADHD it is always challenging.

    What modifications of your child's environment and school do you plan to do that works for your family?

    Re: Starting School with ADHD


    We have already begun pushing bed time further back though this does not alway work since my son has sleep issues still.

    It takes him 1 1/2 hours in the morning to get going and no one can push him.

    Our meeting is scheduled with the principal next week to review a plan for his year and assign teaching staff.

    I hope we can find some interests to draw him into the learning process. He has anxiety already about leaving the grade to move on to High School so we are hoping he does not dig his heels in to stay an extra year. The school will not be holding him back either way. They have a pro-active attitude that confirms it never helps in cases likes ours.

    I already have the Quebec trip on my mind wondering how I can sneak on the bus. I don't want him to miss the opportunity just because he has TS+

    What tips do you have that have worked for you starting a new school year?
