Homework time can be an ordeal for children with AD/HD. After a long day at school, the child often struggles to concentrate and becomes restless, and the parent is left feeling helpless. With the right strategies, homework can be made a more tolerable and even enjoyable experience for both parent and child.
This is a book filled with inspiring methods to motivate children with AD/HD at homework time. Common techniques such as enforcing restrictions and rigid timing techniques can stifle the joy of learning. This book focuses on empowering and enabling the child, acknowledges the characteristics of AD/HD and engages the positive side of these traits. Encouraging movement and creativity, the chapters are brimming with great ideas such as scavenger hunts, singing spelling games and jumping math quizzes that hold the child's attention and make learning fun.
By adopting these simple strategies into the daily routine of a child with AD/HD, parents and teachers can take the tears and tantrums out of homework time and pave the way for academic success.

"The activities in the book capitalize on AD/HD traits because I use the traits as the vehicles to complete the task. AD/HD students like to move, so activities include jumping answers, and singing facts, and activities that are interesting enough to promote focus. The child is empowered to make tents, read on the floor, discuss emotions, and pop bubble paper."
