5 tips for communicating better with your child’s teacher

5 tips for communicating better with your child’s teacher

Posted on: September 26th, 2016 by Neurohealth Associates

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.

  1. Understand the teacher’s mindset
  2. Work with, not against, the teacher
  3. Start before the school year begins
  4. Establish a system for meeting the child’s needs and keeping in contact
  5. 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.”

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
