“Kids with ADHD often benefit from having breaks every 10 to 20 minutes during homework periods” (Brain Balance, 2017). By taking breaks in between to get up, move around or have a snack can help a child to stay on task. Letting them know when that time is coming is also a great reminder to focus.
Yeah you did it!!!
Rewarding a child is also a great way to help students focus on homework. This could be a treat, more television time, or quality time with you.
