Tool: Homework Success Checklist

It’s no secret — children with atypical neurological processing struggle with traditional class room and homework demands.

However, once a teacher truly understands what a child needs to be successful, he or she will often adapt his/her classroom strategy accordingly.

The problem is communicating the child’s needs. And, usually, the people communicating are the teacher and the parent, leaving the child out of the equation altogether.

Better way: Use this free, printable checklist, created by Bonita Blazer, Ph.D., to help your child’s teacher better understand your child. Not only does it make those needs clearer, the checklist gets the child involved in making the classroom and homework experience better.
