Suggested school accommodations for ADHD

Accommodations for school and ADHD have been coming up more lately; not really unexpected as it is the beginning of the school year.

Barkley was kind enough to post an article from the ADHD Report titled 80+ Classroom Accommodations for Children or Teens with ADHD on his site. I posted on this quite a way back but it was under a pay wall at the time. Now it is free as a downloadable pdf.

www.russellbarkley.org/content/ClassroomAccommodations.pdf

These are ideas and while far from being a total list of possible accommodations, could be a good idea generator. Be sure that it is unlikely that anyone will be able to use all of these. Deal with what you can put in effect with the cooperation of the school, teacher and counselor.

I have found that often the school counselor is your best friend. Occasionally though, one can be the child's worse enemy. Pick your battles and work to find allies.

Another point, considering Barkley's stature in the field, it could be a good thing bring to a meeting with a teacher, counselor or ARD committee. A little high powered ammunition never hurts. They may not listen to a parent but Barkley is harder to ignore, doesn't mean that they cannot do it however, but it is at least harder.

In any case enjoy and use it if you think it will be of help.

Yours,

Dizfriz

Re: Suggested school accommodations for ADHD

Thanks. The teacher is supposed to phone us tomorrow with an update. The special education research teacher is working on my daughter's IEP, and I see some good ideas in Barkley's list that parents can also use.

Re: Suggested school accommodations for ADHD

Thanks. I have a meeting shortly with his year tutor and my sons private tutor is coming. His educational psychologist wanted to meet with him but she works in another area. After the meeting she will phone or email him to make sure that he knows exactly what the school needs to be doing in terms of the law and my sons educational rights. She is awesome, she wont go in all guns blazing but she wont be quiet and go away either.
Im lucky to have a good team on my side. The school counselor is a complete waste of space, but I need to be careful not to make an enemy of her.

Re: Suggested school accommodations for ADHD

It is up on a sticky, thanks. Parents and teachers need access to this information.

May I strongly suggest that special attention be paid to the nine principles Barkley describes at the beginning of the article. These are core to any behavior management program (home or school) for ADHD children and cannot be stressed enough.
