Bill of Rights for Children with ADHD

HELP ME TO FOCUS…

Please teach me through my sense of touch. I need “hands-on” and body movement.

I NEED TO KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT…

Please give me a structured environment where there is a dependable routine. Give me an advance warning if there will be changes.

WAIT FOR ME, I’M STILL THINKING…

Please allow me to go at my own pace. If I’m rushed, I get confused and upset.

I’M STUCK, I CAN’T DO IT…!

Please offer me options for problem solving. If the road is blocked, I need to know the detours.

IS IT RIGHT? I NEED TO KNOW NOW…

Please give me rich and immediate feedback on how I’m doing.

I DIDN’T KNOW I WASN’T IN MY SEAT…!

Please remind me to stop, think, and act.

AM I ALMOST DONE…?

Please give me short work periods with short-term goals.

WHAT…?

Please don’t say “I already told you that.” Tell me again, in different words. Give me a signal. Draw me a symbol.

I KNOW IT’S ALL WRONG, ISN’T IT…?

Please give me praise for partial success. Reward me for self-improvement, not just for perfection.

BUT WHY DO I ALWAYS GET YELLED AT…?

Please catch me doing something right and praise me for the specific positive behavior. Remind me–and yourself–about my good points when I’m having a bad day.

Uhm, I did too…and so far no one’s diagnosed my kid with ADHD.
