Containing the mess ADHD children

"Out of sight, out of mind" is very true for people with ADHD. Things that get "put away" get forgotten or lost forever. As a result, things get left out in the open, the theory being that they are visible; therefore they cannot be lost. In truth, this rarely works. Use wire baskets or see-through containers as storage, putting similar items in the same container. Things will be neater and more manageable. It is a great help to people with ADHD ADD.
