Helping an ADHD child improve his reading requires systematic evaluation of skills conducted by his teacher and with the involvement of his parents. A collaborative effort must be put forth in order to help a child become a successful reader. Set up regular meetings with your child’s teacher to make sure that there is consistency in approach and to make sure that his needs are being met.
