  • Your child’s teacher should know if your child is being assessed for ADHD so that they support your child as early as possible.
  • If your child is diagnosed with ADHD, meet your child’s teacher soon afterwards to discuss your child’s treatment plan and how you and the school can work together.
  • If you need to advocate for your child’s needs, learn about the school system, remain positive and see yourself and your child’s school as partners in your child’s care.
