Your daughter's teacher should be able to help you get the BoardMaker program. My stepson also has a retention comprehension disability. I work in the Special Education Dept at Radford University (VA) I have had a lot of help from the faculty in how to handle and teach my stepson, so if you ever have any other questions let me know and I'll ask the faculty. One of them is even acting as an advocate for my stepson. I have been graced with her help.

I use a visual schedule chart with my 12 yearold stepson who has ADHD. It has worked wonders.

I used a program called BoardMaker. You can download a demo version online, but most schools and libraries have copies you may be able to use or copy..

what I did was print out the pictures I wanted to use. Then I laminated them and put magnets on the back. I got a magnetic dry erase board and put on it, To Do; Completed; Punishment. I posted it in an area where EVERYONE can see it (he wasn't too thrilled about it). This way we all know what he has to do that day. As he completes tasks he moves it over to the completed column. He also is reminded if and when he is being punished for something and for how long (he has short term memory at times).

It has been a life saver!

That is wonderful to hear! Thank you very much! I will check into the program. We have a behavioral specialist, TSS aide in school with her, mobile therapist, and a resource coordinator as well! I'm always in communication with everyone, especially her school! They have helped and understood everything so well and I am very blessed!

Thanks for your help! It's very much appreciated!

Thanks Kara! I will look into it. I have never heard of it! But there are many things out there in the world that many people don't know until someone else mentions it! Thanks for the suggestion. I'm glad to hear that it's working for your stepson! That's great to hear!

I have looked at so many sites about this. I did try some of them and it even gave me ideas for my own charts! They work but then fade out! I try to get her involved with it as much as I can...even getting ideas from her, but I'm running out of the ideas!



I understand what you mean about forgetting to monitor. It is hard, especially with me having 2 younger children as well! I need to think of something that fits my life style...not these impossible things!

Thanks again!



Thanks for the thought. I'll still be checking around to see what I can come up with!

I havent had good luck with those(my fault) I forget to monitor. But have you tried some ADHD sites usually they offer toolkits to help manage. you can print or get ideas. Or even the manufacture sites.
