Guest picketfence Posted December 19, 2011 Share Posted December 19, 2011 First, let me introduce myself... I'm homeschooling my sons, grades 4 and 2. I also have a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. We've been following the plan of The Well-Trained Mind, and will be adding Classical Conversations in January. My oldest son is pretty independent and a very quick, natural learner. He loves to read and is fairly self-motivated (except when he's not ;) ). TWTM has worked beautifully for his particular learning style, but I don't know if I ought to mix things up a bit for my second son who was recently diagnosed ADHD. He'll be starting medication soon (probably Concerta), which I hope will help with some of his excessive energy and impulsivity. He has been rather difficult to teach this fall, and now that we have an official diagnosis and are formulating a treatment plan, I'm just wondering... What does homeschooling an ADHD child look like? What have other parents found beneficial and effective in terms of curriculum, schedule, environment, etc.? I'd like to continue with TWTM, especially since after 3.5 years of it, I feel like I might actually sort of know what we're doing! Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
