Back to school time can bring a variety of emotions, especially if your teen has ADHD! As you know, one of the biggest challenges when you have a child with ADHD is to help him or her get and stay organized. There are so many kinds of binder systems, backpacks, etc. to choose from, it’s confusing to know what to buy (and often you end up wasting money–the fancy multi-colored organization systems with all the ‘bells and whistles’ may look nice, but if your teen won’t use them, they are no good.) What I’ve found is that when kids have ADHD, simpler is usually better.
