Q:

Do you know of good homeschooling resources?

Hi everyone!  

I'm Sarah and have started homeschooling my 5 year old.  She's completed Kindergarten in 3 weeks and 1st grade in 4.  I'm looking for support groups as well as informational sources that can help me keep her focused and on track.  I look forward to being here, picking your brains and learning as I go.  Thanks for all the help, in advanced.

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I am new here also and hope I can learn something here. My son is 9 years old and he has ADHD. It is very hard for me to get him to want to learn. He is now in the third grade and having a very hard time with everthiing. Would love so tips on what to do to help him want to learn.<br />

Hi Patricia,<br />
<br />
Is you son currently receiving any additional support or accommodations at school? Does he have a 504 plan set up? If so, you might want to revisit some of the goals and services he is receiving because he most likely needs some additional support in the classroom.<br />
<br />
If he is not currently being supported with a 504 plan, you should consider requesting a special education evaluation to determine if he is eligible for Section 504 (this is where most children with ADHD are served). For more information, you should take a look at some of the articles in the Special Education Information Center:<br />

<br />
Finally, if you are simply looking for ADHD-specific information on parenting and school issues, you should read some of the articles in the ADHD Information Center:<br />

Good luck!<br />
