Question by brilbeaut: What are best resources to help a disorganized 6th grader remember what he needs to do & bring to school?
My son is a new student at a private school in our town. Most boys are either boarders, have been there at least a year, or have older siblings who’ve gone there. To make things worse, there’s a detour driving there (for another month or two) so the trip takes twice as long, with twice as much traffic on a two-lane road.
What webpages, experts, books, tips or groups can you tell me about that will help me (a caring, otherwise-intelligent mom with ADD) help my son set up good, motivating systems?
Thank you SO much!
Kristen, great ideas, thanks!

Make a check list of the items that need to be taken to school. You can have it laminated and them he can check them off everyday before doing to school.
If he is able to do this for a week then he receives a reward of some sort. Should he fail to do this, he losses the play station of a week or his cell phone.
You can also have a contract that states the consequences and the privileges that he is rewarded with and then you both sign it. Display this in his room where he can see it everyday.
