If your ADHD ADD use the following strategies to significantly impact your success at school:
1) Use a scheduler or planner to record assignments, due dates, instructions and factors upon which a grade are based.
2) Look at your planner each morning and set realistic goals for managing your day and completing assignments, including breaking larger projects into smaller steps.
3) Ask teachers for accomodations that help you succeed, such as extended test-taking time or a quit room to take a test. Or, try to sit in the quietest part of the classroom and wear earplugs to block out noisy distractions during tests.
