Helping Your Child With ADD / ADHD Get Homework Done And Turned In On Time, San Jose, California

Having a child who suffers from ADD / ADHD presents some serious parenting challenges, especially when it's time to do their homework. At the end of the day, your child may already be mentally exhausted, which makes focusing on their studies even more difficult. Study Wizards Tutoring, private tutors serving families throughout San Jose, CA and the South Bay,  have some tips for helping your ADD / ADHD child get their homework done and turned in on time.

Take Advantage Of 504/IEP Exceptions: Your child's teachers should be making accommodations to help your children succeed, including giving homework assignments that allow your child to demonstrate their understanding of a topic without doing all of the problems.
Relax Before Homework Time: Letting your child do something they find relaxing for 30 minutes to an hour before starting their homework can give them the energy they need to focus on their homework.
Play To Their Strengths: Instead of trying to get your kids to sit still and focus for an extended period of time, feel free to mix in enriching activities they enjoy, like music or drawing. You can make these intervals very short, if necessary, if it helps them stay focused.
Let Them Fidget: Your child will probably be able to focus if they have something to fidget with, like a stress ball or pencils to play with.
