If your child struggles with learning or behavior challenges, this can be a challenging time. The experts at Brain Balance Achievement Centers have tips to ease the transition.

Set your morning routine before the first day.

Invariably, the first day of school comes with rush to get everyone, and everything, out the door on time. Starts early by establishing a morning routine, and practice it before the first day.

Meet the Teacher.

If possible, try to meet with your child’s teacher before school begins. This helps set expectations for communication, builds rapport, and allows you to get critical details about the daily schedule.

Set-Up Defined Schedules for Study Time and Fun Time.

Institute a plan to complete nightly homework, and help you child develop a system to ensure completed work actually gets turned in! Just as your child needs a routine for homework and studying, consider “scheduling” in 10-20 minutes of fun activities with your child.

Try These Supplies to Help Keep Your Child on Track.

Students who suffer from ADHD and other learning disorders are often disorganized and impatient when it comes to taking care of school supplies and assignments. Consider investing in these key supplies to maximize chances for success:

Three-Hole Punch: One of the key back-to-school supplies for ADHD sufferers and students with other learning disorders is a three-hole punch. Keep a three-hole punch at home, and at the end of every school day, check through folders and backpacks to find errant papers. Help your child to carefully punch them and put them in the appropriate binder or folder.

Dry-erase calendar: Students with learning differences often have a hard time remembering important dates. To help keep them on everyone’s radar, invest in a large wall-size dry-erase calendar where you can record upcoming assignment and test dates.

Colored labels, sharpies, and book covers: To help students keep work and supplies organized, it can be helpful to use colors. Assign a color to each subject, then use folders, labels, markers and book covers to demarcate each of the materials.

Duplicate sets of books and supplies: Whatever books and supplies you purchase, it’s a good idea to invest in two sets — one for school and one for home.
