Teachers can find teaching children with ADHD or related conditions to be challenging. Communicating effectively with teachers is one of the most important things you as a parent can do to ensure that your child receives the supports and structures needed for success.
- Understand the teacher’s mindset
- Work with, not against, the teacher
- Start before the school year begins
- Establish a system for meeting the child’s needs and keeping in contact
- Don’t go at it alone.
Remember that two heads (or more) are better than one, and there is a lot of resources both online and via support groups that can make the journey easier.
These 5 tips are taken from Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). CHADD is a non-profit organization that works towards “improving the lives of people affected by ADHD.”
