Tips for Parents

• Since there is not enough time during a school day for the needed daily practice of math drill and rote memorization, try to spend at least five minutes a day practicing at home in a variety of formats. Do so in a fun, relaxed manner, without pressure or tension.

• Many children with ADHD and/or learning disabilities are not proficient with functional math skills (measurement, time concepts, counting money/change). Practice as much as possible at home. These are critical skills that teachers often do not have enough time to teach until mastery. Include your child in activities such as cooking/baking, constructing, sewing, gardening, home improvements, and so on, as these all involve measurement and other functional math skills.
