my son has an agenda that the teacher fills out and signs so that i know what we need to do for the next day or study for it works great. I also sign it to let the teacher know that I have looked at it. My son gets punished if he doesn't come home with his agenda and we also have a calendar on the fridge that we writse important dates on so we don't forget

This can be pretty normal for a lot of children. I agree with lisa, you need to work with his teacher very closely, as this is an area you don't want your child to fail in. Your teacher should also be aware of your child's ADHD and any medications he's taking so they can notify you if there is any change in behavior (for instance the medication isn't working the whole day). Although these children suffer from ADHD, they still need discipline and what I mean by that is no video games, movies or television when homework is needs to be done. If they lose what they like to do (and for some reason they never fail to remember a movie to watch or a video game to play), that in itself can be a motivator for homework/chores to be done first.

My 8 year old daughter is having problems and I email her teacher for assignments and behavior and progress...i don't know if this is available for you but it may be worth checking into. Good luck!

I have a boy that is 10 yrs. old. he brings home the papers that he needs the book with and forgets the book. Have you tried a check list with your son. I have but still not bring home the book. What do you do? It is driving me crazy?

I recently bought my son an electronic organizer. He oves it an actually uses it. Since it's electronic and he doesn't need to write in it he uses it. I check it everyday to see that his assignments are recorded. Three weeks so far.
