Back To School Tips For A Stress Free Transition

 

It’s that time again!  Back-to-School season is officially here!  I feel like summer flew by and we didn’t do half of what I wanted to! We are gathering school supplies almost every time we go to the store instead of one big trip and the kids are already picking out their favorite backpack to store all their stuff in. Our entire family is excited to get back to school.1-Mom and Daughter holding handsHowever, not everyone is excited about back to school. The beginning of a new school year can be a challenging time for families with children who have learning and attention issues, like ADHD and dyslexia. Believe it or not, those issues effect one in five! Children with these types of challenges can feel especially stressed during the back-to-school season as they face new subjects, teachers, friends and schools.

This year The Ad Council and Understood.org are promoting ways you can be ready for the first day of school. Understood.org is offering a free First-Day Ready Guide to help parents with students at every age successfully manage back-to-school transitions.

We found the homework contract to be especially useful. It outlines when and where we expect homework to be done and then what happens if it is not done.

Check out these back-to-school tips from the Understood.org website.  They helped my family; hopefully they can help yours too.
