The following are questions suggested by the organizer for parents to ask: What is the best way to help my child at home? What are Executive Function skills? Does my child need a 504 plan, an IEP? Am I a Helicopter parent? Where do you find a tutor or ADHD coach? Should kids do their homework right after school or wait until later? What if my child takes meds for their ADHD?
