ADHD Resources for Parents

Nov 15, 2021 by Mary Kate | ADHD, Learning Resources

This month at TeamTutor we would like to help spread awareness about ADHD. According to the CDC, there are 6.1 million students in the United States who are diagnosed with ADHD. A child with ADHD may process information around them differently which can sometimes make school challenging. We have created a list of resources that can help you as a parent understand ADHD better and some creative strategies that can help them navigate their assignments and learn best with how their brain works!


Understanding ADHD: Information for Parents

ADHD can exhibit three characteristics: inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Some children exhibit only one of these characteristics or while others show all three. gives clear examples of what these behaviors might look like in a child and gives examples of questions to start a conversation with your child’s pediatrician if your child is showing these behaviors. 


How to ADHD YouTube Channel

How to ADHD

This resource is great for middle schoolers and older students. The host of the Youtube Channel Jessica McCabe has ADHD herself and speaks from personal experiences when she shares strategies that work for ADHD students and strategies that do not. Students can see McCabe’s videos and discussions and makes managing ADHD relatable.



We have spoke about ADDitude before as one of the most helpful advocacy websites for ADHD with practical strategies for success. ADDitude has an entire section of articles for parents from the best fidget toys to organizational strategies. If you are struggling with a particular behavior related to ADDitude probably have an article with ideas to help your child.


Online Learning & ADHD

University of North Carolina Learning Center

Even though many students are back in school online learning may still come into play this school year. The University of North Carolina’s Learning Center provides a realistically helpful article for ADHD students in online learning. Since ADHD students thrive best on routine the UNC’s learning center suggests keeping students on that routine even when they are learning remotely. This can be a challenge, but if the schedule remains the same it can make room for your student to concentrate on their work instead of asking “what’s next?” or “am I missing something?”

We hope these resources are helpful! If you need academic support for your child with ADHD, we can help. Reach out to us today to learn more!
