How to reduce homework struggles with ADHD

I don’t know about you but some of the most frustrating moments with my children have erupted over homework. Homework is especially difficult for kids with ADHD, they have given every ounce of effort and focus during the school day and it is the last thing they want to do and the end of the day. The truth is I am tired too and want curl up and watch Netflix. Inevitably one of us will get frustrated and end up in tears. Enough about me… here are a few ideas to help reduce homework struggles and make homework easier for both you and your children:



  • Ask your child where they having difficulty how you can best support them
  • Praise effort and focus on what was accomplished


Learning Preferences

  • Know your child’s preferred learning modality 
  • Visual, Auditory, Read & Write, Kinesthetic or Combo 
  • When is the most productive time to do homework after school in the morning before school?


Get Organized

  • Use a student planner
  • Review assignment instructions, expectations, due dates and exam dates
  • Help break down larger assignments into smaller tasks
  • Set reminders

Dedicated Homework Space

  • A place where there are limited distractions
  • School supplies on hand
  • Headphones 
  • Set phone to Do Not Disturb


Work In Spurts

  • Use a timer 
  • Take breaks
  • Daily habit
  • Same time everyday


Look For Homework Support
