My six year old was diagnosed last year after going to four different professionals with having ODD. As a result he has a very hard time focusing, it normally takes three times as long for him to do his homework as a 'normal' child would. His handwriting is also behind so I as well as his occupational therapist/speech therapist have been working on it with him. Well his homework is currently: 1) Read one book a night and ask five questions for him to answer, 2) Go over sight words (10 words a week), 3) do one spelling block a night (such as write a story using your sight words or write your sight words five times each) 4) do one math block a night. It isn't too much except when you have a child who takes three times as long to accomplish it all :/ On top of having to ask him to erase and rewrite constantly because his teacher will put a red mark on it if she thinks it is not written good enough. Then she will send a note home asking him to re do it even though she knows we have been trying hard to work with him on his handwriting. I am trying my best to work with him on all of this, he gets overwelmed easily and 'shuts down' because he gets so frusterated with the homework. His dad works 1pm-3am so it is pretty much up to me to do the homework with both kids. Any other mom out there who shares this frusteration? Do you have a child with ODD or ADD? Any tips?
