Many teens with ADHD have problems paying attention, staying on task and completing assignments. Sometimes all that is needed to increase the odds of success are a few simple classroom accommodations. For a summary of the difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP and access to a FREE list of the 25 of the best classroom accommodations for Teens with ADHD that you can incorporate into either one, click HERE
One of the biggest challenges students have when they have ADHD is keeping track of assignments for each of their classes. Sometimes what helps is for students to use a daily assignment tracker. I created one that has a space for each class to prompt him/her to turn in work, a space for each class to write down what the “homework” is for that night, and a spot for teachers to give feedback on behaviors that day.
For a printable, reproducible tracking form that will not only help your teen keep track of assignments but will give you a way to communicate daily with teachers about behavior goals, click HERE.
Organization is one of the most difficult skills to master for kids with ADHD. I have put together a list of the supplies and tools that I have found work best with teens with ADHD.
