After having my own sp needs son for 19 years I started doing respite care in my home to help other parents. In 5 days I will start caring for a 9 yr old ADHD girl one or 2 weekends a month. I met the mother, social worker, and child. I work through a respite company in our area. She is VERY active, mostly non verbal and diapered. I am VERY excited to start working with her. Since I have never worked with an ADHD child before I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for me on toys, activities, communication ideas etc.What questions/information should I be getting from mom or the social worker? I asked for her school IEP and will be getting that this week. She is a little doll and I know I am going to love her! Any suggestions and ideas are welcome. I found this site purely by accident trying to gather info on my own.
