  • Have the child(ren) repeat

  • Provide clarity and structure for the students

  • Be fair, firm and consistent

  • Remain calm

  • Disengage from power struggles

  • Role model appropriate behavior

  • Give extra praise for a job well done

  • Choose issues carefully

  • Allow the child to vent before dealing with issues

  • Try to get an understanding of how the child “perceives”

    the situation first before trying to work through it

  • Deal with one situation at a time

  • Plan a response and avoid “reacting”


  • We Can Make a Difference with ADD/ADHD

  • Affirm and acknowledge their feelings and your confidence in their ability to make good choices.

  • Use “what” questions rather than “why” questions

  • Use “when …then” rather than “If you don’t…you won’t”

  • Training and knowledge about Add/ADHD

  • Close communication between home and school

  • Team work / Administrative support

  • Respecting student privacy and confidentiality while being sensitive about not embarrassing or humiliating

  • BELIEVE IN THE STUDENT – do not give up when the plan(s) A, B, and C don’t work
