ADHD Awareness: Tips for Building School Communication

supporting a student with home-school communicationRecently, we posted an article about the importance of home-school communication with an ADHD child. But what do you actually need to consider when trying to set up communication with your child's teacher?

In honour of ADHD awareness month last month, our Director of Health Education Laura MacNiven collaborated with Joanne Sallay from Teachers on Call and Dr. Dina Kulik from DrDina.ca, a children's health information website, to talk about how to build an action plan that encourages home-school communication.

As mentioned in the article, it can certainly feel like a tough decision to disclose information about your child's ADHD diagnosis with their school team. That being said, an open dialogue between all the key domains of a child's life can be incredibly beneficial, and leave families feeling much more engaged and empowered!
