What are some tips/curriculums for a homeschooled middle school child with ADHD... details?

We Answered:

He needs hands-on, meaningful work that creates associations between what he is learning and all the extras. Follow his lead, find 'regular' books that fill his education needs, and drop the textbooks. Once you stop buying those, you'll have the extra cash to get museum and zoo memberships. Get those and STAY there as much as he wants. No agenda, just allow him to learn from that environment. Added bonus is that with memberships, you get free or reduced price classes. Stimulate his interests by visiting new places, not just museums or libraries, but new stores...a variety of places, state or national parks. Anything could start an interest...leading to an extraordinary amount of learning.

If his handwriting is legible, stop forcing him to write. In this day and age, you don't have to write more than to sign your name on a debit slip or fill out a job app (and many places you can do that online even)

If he gets overwhelmed easily, stop doing so much. You're homeschooling so that he doesn't HAVE to follow the school's don't do it at home! My children have various and sundry issues, including aspergers, autism, adhd, and sad. Homeschooling is such an effective and wonderful way to sustain their innate love of learning.

What are good Assistive Technology ideas?

We Answered:

You should check with your school's Occupational Therapist. Some AT ideas might include using a computer or AlphaSmart (basically a keyboard that stores whole essays which are transmitted to a computer to print). For writing/math definitely use large squared graph paper for math problem alignment. When allowed, let the students use calculators- or even just use the calculators to check their work.

Ruth Said:

Where can you find the Reading Comprehension level of a novel?

We Answered:

Pride and prejudice is not a particularly difficult book. It's in the beginning of the "literature" range. Tougher than popular literature, such as Stephen King, but easy compared to Dostoevsky and butter compared to Kant.
Keep reading. It will make more sense as you go on - same for French and Latin.
