If your kids are procrastinating on getting their summer homework assignments completed, offer them short term rewards for completing each section. Even better, let them suggest their own rewards.  We really like the attached blog post from ImpactADHD.com, which provides solid advice on how ADHD kids can learn to motivate themselves to gets tasks done.

Download a free 4-page “Executive Function and Study Skills” parent’s primer which describes the types of executive function deficits most commonly seen in an ADHD child. HomeworkCoach believes that understanding a child’s executive function weaknesses allows the tutor to deploy strategies to improve those skills and thereby help the child become more successful in school.

Is your ADHD child spending far more time on homework than you feel is reasonable?  Ask the teacher whether homework can be shortened. For instance, instead of your child having to do 20 math problems each night, see whether the teacher will agree to your child doing ten. A good teacher will be attuned to the challenges an ADHD child faces and should accommodate this request.
