ADHD Homeschool Teaching Tips: Harness the Power of the ADHD Brain
Play • 31 min


Are you homeschooling a child with ADHD?  Does your kiddo hate all things school?  Chores?  Sitting still?  Ha!  Don’t be discouraged.  ADHD can be an incredible gift!!

Regardless, whether you are a new or veteran homeschool mom, harnessing the attention of the ADHD brain can be a challenge. You know the signs:

  • Trouble paying attention to non-preferred activities (think math, reading, chores… whatever is not interesting)
  • Can’t sit still,
  • Difficulty taking turns,
  • Trouble making transitions,
  • A bedroom that is always messy no matter how many times it has been organized…

You get the idea.

Insisting on the traditional school-based approach in our homeschools only sets up our kids (and moms) to fail.  Mom becomes frustrated with her inability to teach her child.  Academic growth stalls while frustrations and tensions between child and mom grow.

The good thing is that ADHD is often not the problem!  It’s our adult expectations that’s the issue.  When we adjust our expectations to see the abilities and strengths of the ADHD brain, we can harness its genius!

Listen to this week’s episode full of ideas to best harness the power of your child’s ADHD brain.  My sweet friend, Alicia Mathews, a pediatric Occupational Therapist offered some of her favorite OT strategies to use to support optimal learning for our ADHD kids.

Get excited and have some fun this week as you try out these simple, but powerful tips in your homeschool! 

And get this… these strategies work for ALL.THE.THINGS… behavior, chores and to simply allow your child to thrive in so many ways. 

Listen in and be encouraged!  Comment below with your favorite ways to teach your ADHD kiddo at home!   We’re in this together!!
