The Magic 20 Minute Rule for the ADHD ADD child

Remember the magic 20-minute rule: the maximum time that any person with ADD ADHD can concentrate on something is 20 minutes. Observe your attention deficit child to find his magic number. Then, keep track of this time as he does his homework. When the magic number is reached, switch gears. This may mean moving from math to spelling, or it may mean taking a short break.
