    I have a student who is very frustrated with his ADHD. He is very aware that he can't focus. He tries very hard. Right now I am looking for some strategies for getting him started on writing assignments. Yesterday, he couldn't even get the prompt from the board written on the top of his paper.

    Any ideas for self starting on writing for ADHD kids?

    How about giving him a special pencil or pen that he enjoys using. Maybe this will help him focus on his hand instead of other things.

    Thanks for the idea. I was thinking of letting him type his responses on the computer. Maybe I'll try the pencil first.
