Attention problems


Due to the pandemic, classroom accommodations, especially for children with neurodevelopmental challenges, are now even more essential. Accommodations include tips to make learning more “friendly,” thus helping students experience success. Over the years, I’ve found it helpful to organize accommodations using a “3S” System: Sight, Sound, and Space.



In order to notify a school that your child is struggling and request services, the first thing you must do is provide written notice. This can be addressed to the principal of the school or to the special education director of your district. If your district is LAUSD, send notice to the principal of your child’s school of attendance.



When a child is struggling in school, a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation conducted early on with periodic reevaluations can drastically change their trajectory and maximize their chances for academic success.



Ten activities – and not a single worksheet or flashcard. They’ll get plenty of those when they resume school. I could continue for hours, but I hope these “games” will at least suggest a basic framework from which you can create your own activities. Even in the midst of this severe health crisis, rest assured you’re making special memories that will last a lifetime.
