Book Review: School Strategies for ADHD Kids

School Strategies for ADHD Kids is an easy read filled with tips and strategies on how to help your ADHD kid succeed in school. Written by Board Certified Educational Therapist Bonnie Terry, these strategies are perfect for teachers, parents, and professionals working with ADHD kids.

“An accurate diagnosis of the ADD/ADHD is helpful when dealing with the child that exhibits ADD/ADHD symptoms,” writes Bonnie, “However, the actual label of ADD/ADHD isn’t as important as being able to know and recognize the symptoms and to know how to treat or deal with the symptoms.”

Some of the strategies are organizational tips like “Have your students color-code their books and papers” and “provide time to pack up their backpacks so they have what they need for their homework assignments”. These tips will help your kids keep track of their homework and assignments.

Other tips will help to more accurately measure how much your child is learning -- “Test for knowledge, not attention span by shortening the length of tests, or giving one part at a time” and “Give some tests orally”, suggests Bonnie.

These strategies are sure to help you better understand and teach the ADHD child in your life.

Bonnie Terry’s School Strategies for ADHD Kids is available for $3.99 on Amazon.com (Kindle Edition).
