“I Can’t Focus!” When ADHD Affects Your Child’s Math and Writing Performance

Students with ADHD often find math and writing challenging, because both subjects require extensive working memory. But almost any student can master writing and math with the right study hacks and strategies. Unfortunately, these important skills are not always taught in the classroom.

The second quarter is now well underway, and effective strategies can make the difference between success and frustration for the rest of the school year. In this workshop for parents, Ann Dolin, MEd—an author, educator, and member of the editorial advisory board for CHADD’s Attention magazine—will share:

✓ research-based math study skills and strategies to use at home and in class

✓ how to help your child get organized and get their thoughts down on paper

✓ tech tools to help students get started on assignments (and finish them!)

✓ what we are learning about the lingering impacts of pandemic-related school disruptions, and what you can do to help your child close math and writing learning gaps that deepened during the COVID-19 pandemic.
