  EPISODE SUMMARY   Throughout their life, our kids will spend over 2000 days in school before they graduate high school. For children with ADHD, school can be completely overwhelming! From struggling to sit still, to following multiple instructions… it’s no wonder they meltdown after a day at school! Accommodations can be a game changer, but there is a LOT of misinformation out there!

AFFILIATE INFORMATION 

We can’t have your attention, and not mention Time Timer. As parents, we are looking for anything that will support our kids and make our lives easier. The original Time Timer does just that. In our homes, it allows us to teach our kids how to visualize time. This helps with activity transitions, independence, and building executive function skills. Trust our pro-tip; it’s a game changer!
