Hi, I have to ask : have you met with the school to see what is working there? The are tons of CAMS (centered accomadations and modifications). I know with my son we have worked and worked with motivations and organization. It has taken the teachers and us as a team to help G remember, stay on track, keep motivated, complete anything, and keep a good attitude. I could throw out several CAMS but why invent the wheel if there is something that may already be working. Blessing s B
And I should add you have prob tried like a million things already that have not been sucessful. What were they and why did they not fit your child?
We have the same problem. With his homework I find that I have to sit in the room with him, work with him with the TV off and the door closed so that he doesn't get distracted easily. His Dr. suggested that I give him a 5 minute break every 15 minutes so that he is able to concentrate. I found 15 minutes too distractful... So every 20 minutes he gets 5 minutes. Its working well right now but only because I eliminate all the distractions. He starts trailing off sometimes but its getting better. His work at school still suffers but under his IEP they have to send his work home and allow him to finish it at home. It makes a huge difference!!! I make sure what he was too distracted to learn during the day, I teach him at home.
