I’m thinking a ‘coach’ might be a good idea, if there’s one available in your school.
Teacher Assistants, Educational Associates; whatever you call them, are there to literally support and coach with stuff like this. My job as an EA in a high school is to help students with learning disabilities to succeed by teaching organization skills, giving the tools to get good at completing assignments, staying focussed, etc., etc. In my opinion, having an advocate or coach for the adhd student is almost as important as getting the right diet.
And sometimes it’s just not the same at home, as we might expect it to be; parents of teenagers know absolutely nothing … I know, I am one!
The adhd student needs to know they have someone on their side at school too!REPORT ABUSE
