Transitions of any type can be stressful for many kids with learning and attention issues. Going back to school after the long summer break can be an especially difficult change.

One of the best ways to ease the transition is to get back to set schedules and routines. Having that structure is also a good way to help kids with time management issues and ADHD stay on track.

“We see more issues in the morning when pressed for time and don’t really have an opportunity to redirect our son’s attention. How can I turn this morning routine around?” —A parent from the Understood community

This week, Start School Strong is all about getting back on track for the start of school. We have tips and tools to help with everything from making mornings easier to calming first-day jitters. Check out the highlights here. (And don’t forget to join our community conversation to see what parents are saying about kick-starting school routines!)








Next week’s focus will be communication—with the teacher and with your child. We’ll share ideas for starting a dialogue with your child’s new teachers. We’ll also share tips on what to say—and not to say—to your child about school.
