Trick or treating is so much fun but who really needs all that sugar in their lives? Here are some fun options that you might not have heard about or considered to get rid of some of that candy without the kids feeling like they are missing out.
It’s conference time at many of our schools and I want to encourage you to think of them in a new way, especially if you have a visual learner or child with ADD or ADHD. The teacher’s feedback on how your child is doing in the classroom is very important to hear, but there also needs to be a conversation on who your child is as a visual learner.
If your child is struggling with focus, testing and some academic work, there is no understanding, no work around, no assistance for them as visual learners. But if your child is unfocused, distracted, struggling academically, and diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, help is available in the form of a 504 learning plan.
Let’s be honest, homework is not going away anytime soon. Whether you have a young visual learner just starting their school and homework journey or a seasoned visual learner, homework can be a source of tension in your house. Try these 9 simple ways to turn homework battles into homework wins today.
