Common Questions and Answers about Adhd homework

adhd

Avatar n tn my ds is ADHD and fights with me everyday that he has homework. I think the teacher gives out to much homework for the first grade. . She will give five spelling words that have to be wrote one time each,ten reading words that need to be wrote one time each, and a math paper with 25 math problams on it. All this is assigned for one night of homework. And its due back the next day. Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid the homework war that we go though every night.
Avatar n tn Doing your homework is a whole different matter. Yes, you can do it. But if you have ADHD its gonna take you double or triple the time of someone who does not have it. After a while - you say screw it. Which then leads to cheating on tests cause you don't have the info. I would also add that my best indicator for a child that had AD/HD was frustration. You do seem to have that. Your other symptoms do seem to fit.

Avatar m tn my 10 yr old daughter has had adhd for the past 6 yrs and is on focolin rx now 50mg in am and 10mg in afternoon. with her she has had trouble with memory loss for some time now and cant retain information from the past or at times 30 seconds after being told. she was giagnosed 3 yrs ago with seizure tendencies after fainting in my arms. her doc has not explored this further.
Avatar n tn This is not to say that, if she is diagnosed with ADHD, it explains all of her behavior, but may be a component of it. I would revisit the ADHD issue, and have her evaluated again, including collecting data via standardized checklists that are widely accepted as helping to establish this descriptive diagnosis. As an aside, it's not unusual for children who display ADHD to also have the ability to be attentive and focused in particular circumstances.
Avatar n tn Forgets backpack on Bus. Forgets to put name on homework papers. He gets B's on his report card but usually with the caveat "needs to pay more attention in class". I attribute his good grades to me checking his homework each night and making him redo it if it is sloppy or done incorrectly, which it is a lot of the time.
Avatar f tn I have ADHD and my son has ADHD. It runs in my family from way back before ADHD became rampant and misdiagnosed. My son also has a very high IQ - and had the same difficulties as your son. I also work in the school as a speech pathologist. Request an obsevation by either the School Psychologist or a Teacher Consultant, if they have one. They can also give you a checklist that can be filled out by you, the teacher and your son.
Avatar n tn Both rockrose and jdtm give possible answers. Let me give a third possibility (and there could be more). I post a lot on the ADHD forum. This certainly has the symptoms of someone with ADD. A person with ADD can easily be missed by the teacher - especially if the child has decent intelligence and is a nice kid. Its the hyper ones that always get noticed by the teacher.
894766 tn?1241540001 just a thought, i am not sure what meds your daughter is on, but i know some of the meds i took when i was little made the adhd and aspers much worse i can also relate to homework issues when my son was in first grade he was placed at the bakc of the room, and ignored, each night we would have to do school work and homework, i struggled for several years fighting the system, getting help, looking for resources, i eventually started homeschooling been a god send for us, however math is a huge pro
Avatar f tn My son with Aspergers is 10 and has just started fourth grade about five weeks ago. The homework in fourth grade has increased significantly from third grade in both time and difficulty. My son can't really seem to handle the homework too well. Often when I say "Kids! It's time for homework!" he has a tantrum that he doesn't want to do the homework and how long it will take. While he does his homework he often whines and cries.
Avatar f tn Can he do several problems in a row without losing his concentration. Does he have a clue how to do his homework? When he was doing his homework, did it take him a lot longer than the other kids in his class? If a child is doing poorly in school - ie. everytime they are called on, they have the wrong answer. Every test or quiz they take, they fail it. It doesn't take too long to start hating school and want to stay home.
Avatar f tn Wondering what experience people have had with the different medications for ADHD. My son will be turning 7 soon, and some days I don't think he needs medication and other days I feel like it might be helpful if he were on something. However, I've been reading about the different kinds and their side effects, and now I'm terrified to put him on something. I'm also interested in hearing if people have tried any herbal supplements, or CBD oil.
Avatar n tn in the afternoons..do you homework, take it off. 45 min. later to one hour out of your system..eat dinner..go to bed. It's great!
Avatar f tn I agree with allmymarbles drugs are horrible for these kids. Bipolar and ADHD can be treated naturally if your homework is done right. It means making sure your child is actually sleeping and not waiting until you go to bed and walking around all night displaying anger. When a child has sleep deprivation they have a "second wind" as my grandmother called it. They will fight sleep because of nightmares. It can take weeks to make up the deficit.
Avatar f tn My son just turned 13 years old and has adhd. I am going crazy because I feel like I only yell at him and seen upset or frustrated all of the time. My son doesn't take anything seriously. He always makes fun of me for how I have a strong RI accent. He is a sweet kid but he can sometimes act like he's going backwards in maturity. He acts like he's 5 sometimes. (Behaviorwise). Its like he needs 24/7 attention.
Avatar f tn Homework is probably one of the best clues. If most kids take one hour for homework, the ADHD child will take 3 hours and probably still not be done. Watch them at play. ADHD kids have a lack of filters (until they get older). Consequently they will hit other kids or say things that cause them to lose friends. Many times they are not even aware they hit the other child. Finally, you say that "you don't want to make a big deal out of nothing.
Avatar n tn He and his half sister who I also adopted received counseling early after they were removed from their biological mother who was a drug addict and prositute. During the problems in Kindergarten is when I sought medical help and he was diagnosed with ADHD/ODD. A couple different medicines were tried for the ADHD but then he could not sleep and he still displayed aggressive behavior.
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.
1699033 tn?1514116733 Hi Sandman...does the book you always reference go over ways to make an ADHD person more organized? My son is apparently "hit or miss" with homework. He does not always get it written down in his agenda book. He does have some accommodations but to be honest, I have not seen the actual IEP. He has a second set of books at home. The IEP manager is looking into this for me with his teachers. I just wanted to know of there were any strategies that work for these kids.
Avatar m tn My child has ADHD but I believe is more then ADHD its his behavior at home. Doesn't want to do homework and is lazy to write anything on paper. Has problem understanding what he reads. When he does not get anything done he gets very angry. He answer back with disrespect and tells me to be quite. It has become more out of control as he gets older. I try many rules in the house. How can I discipline my child with respect?
Avatar f tn //www.additudemag.com/search/keyword/Homework%20and%20Test%20Help.html as well as a lot of other very good tips for working with AD/HD kids. Finally, recent studies have shown that just medication is nowhere as effective as medication and counseling. Has he had any help in understanding what ADHD is, how it affects him, and how to cope with it. The meds are not a magic bullet and there are a lot of other things that need to go along with it. Hope some of this helps.
Avatar n tn She is the middle of 3 girls, and always seems to run off of a motor...never ever stopping. This week we have gone over her reading homework at least 2 times every evening, and she took her test today on it, and got a D- I don't understand, and I don't want to just put her on meds for the rest of her childhood. I was wondering what everyone thought about the possibility of a food allergy? I have heard of this, but does it really make kids off the wall like my little Cressa is?
Avatar n tn DEAR DR. MY SON IS 5 YEAR OLD AND HE IS GOING SCHOOL KG-2, HE IS HAVING ADHD PROBLEMS. NEVER SIT ANY PLACE NOR HE LISTEN US. FOR STUDIES ALSO I HAVE TO SIT WITH ALL THE TIMES AND ALWAYS ASK HIM TO DO THE WORK. HE NEVER DO HIS HOMEWORKS. ALSO HE IS TOO MUCH AGRESSIVE AND BEATING HIS NANNY AND THE YOUNGER BROTHER.

601869 tn?1219805308 My 5 year old daughter has a lot of symtoms of ADHD. She can never seem to remember what she did at daycare the same day I ask her about it. She doesn't finish her projects as fast (or at all) as the other kids. She's very easily distracted, loses things very easily and can't seem to find them even if it's right in front of her. She floats off in her own world when we are trying to speak to her (really only when we're scolding her). Doesn't pay attention.
Avatar f tn He sometimes forgets things-- like his assignment book, or his homework folder. Bcause he talks so much and is sometimes fidgety in class he does not hear the instructions and makes mistakes or does not complete his work.He does not like to sit in his chair at school-- he often stands or sits improperly. He does not run around the class room but I think he tries to make excuses to get up out of his chair- to get a drink of water or to go to the bathroom. At home, he does talk a lot.
571167 tn?1223218065 WHAT IS THE AGE TO PROPERLY HAVE YOUR CHILD DIAGNOSED FOR ADHD OR ADD? I HAVE HAD MY SON IN THE DR.'S SO MANY TIMES TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HIM. NOW TEACHERS,DR.'S, AND EVERYONE ELSE SAYS HE IS CLASSIC ADHD WITH POSSIBILTY OF OCD. BUT HE ATTENDS THE CHILDRENS HOSPITAL CLINIC HERE IN CINCINNATI OHIO AND THEY TOLD MY HUSBAND THAT THEY DONT DIAGNOSE TILL 6 YRS OF AGE. WELL HE IS 6 NOW & I GET NOWHERE STILL. I FEEL BAD 4 HIM. GOD LOVE HIM HE CANT PAY ATT.
Avatar n tn I have heard green tea is good for adhd. I have a 9 year old with adhd and would love to hear stories of others who have used green tea for adhd. How much a day and when is best. I heard later in the day is the best time but I am concerned about it might affect his sleep. He is going for an appointment with a Dr. tomorrow who wants to put him on meds but we are a bit uncomfortable with this.
Avatar n tn Also he is adopted so I have no family history persae. My son shows all the signs of ADHD(and symptoms)and he is 8 years old. I took him to a Psy.D who said he is not ADHD based on his tests. His I.Q. is 147 and he is in the top 99% in all areas tested. Still he presents as ADHD to me. Then the other day I read an article in a magazine at the doctors office about kids being misdiagnosed with ADHD when in fact they have a neurological disorder called something like Hypersensitivity.
Avatar n tn My almost 7 year old daughter had some difficulties going into and throughout kindergarten we put her in at almost five she did fine academically but maturity wasn't there and she would get up and walk away while they were working on stuff, have to go to the bathroom alot and blurt out during class. We put her in kinder again for a second year.
1645341 tn?1401063612 at first he was diagnosed with ADHD. He is currently on ADHD medications, and they do not seem to be helping. During one visit to his therapist he had a violent fit, and she decided that the symptoms I insisted he had and what she was seeing was symptomatic of Bi-Polar disorder. They refused to change his medications to reflect the new diagnosis. My child has the most horrible fits while he is at home.
