Guidelines for Parents

Children with ADHD find it difficult to do homework at home and often have a hard time doing it due to lack of attention and concentration. With the following guidelines we intend that parents help their children to organize themselves with the following tasks:

  1. Create a physical and structured environment:
  • Work rules (simple, clear and agreed); it is good that they are visible.
  • Establish a daily work routine at home (mark well-defined work and leisure times).
  • Anticipate possible changes in routines (extracurricular activities …).
  • Always have the class schedule in view so that they can remember each subject and the work to be done in each one of them.
  • Keep the homework schedule present whenever possible.
  • Avoid being in a place with distractions (kitchen, living room …).
  1. Organize tasks and use of media:
  • Use things that favor their attention (videos, computer, Tablet …).
  • Help them to structure tasks so that they are short and motivating.
  • Use diagrams and summaries.
  • Establish a list of activities to be carried out and that can be marked by those carried out (checklist).
  • Always have a watch that establishes the “concentrated” work time.
  • Have a good organization of the work material (before going to work you should check that you have everything at your fingertips to carry out the work).
  • Use of a signal (alarm, after having a snack, a song …) that indicates that study time begins.
  1. Monitor understanding:
  • Attract his attention to the tasks in a more playful way (let him have this time standing up talking about the activity).
  • Summarize instructions individually.
  • Repeat the instructions using other words with gestures and visual support.
  1. Gradual increase in concentration:
  • Try to increase work times.
  • Reinforce attention times with verbal praise.
  • Establish a reward system for time spent on homework.
