It’s difficult for them, but I do understand how frustrating it can be for you as well.

We need them to spend more time at home doing revision but they can’t sit still for a minute and it’s boring – who wouldn’t rather be playing on the WII, outside whatever rocks their world out of school 😉

Always remember homework is just that ‘revision’ it doesn’t have to be taxing, make it successful and light.  Ensure they get lots of praise and if you give them the answer or help them solve a maths problem, it’s not a big deal.  Gosh sometimes my son is so tired I do the writing as handwriting is a real struggle for him.  Who cares – he is trying, and it’s revision.   They are trying .

Keeping them on task

My son has sensory processing issues and finds it difficult to stay still at the best of times. I often, to help with staying on task we use a fit ball to jump on and count either backwards or forwards.  If he’s really looking like he needs a break we run to the letter box and have races for a couple of minutes.  We also use the fit ball to do exercises – they are be best!  A bit crazy but when he sits back on the chair he’s ready to have a go again.  It works!  Keeps me fit as well.

Back to my e-books I have lots to share very soon for us all to access at Language Delay Network.

Until the next post.
