While medication will help children's attention, it's important to encourage organizational or focus techniques for when the medication wears off or to stand in place of medication once the child learns to adjust. Helpful items may include sitting down and creating a calendar for your child. A great place to start would be to create a treatment schedule with checkboxes that children can tick when they've completed their treatment. Once you've developed a few organizational tools: treatment schedule, morning routine guide, homework planner, or any other tool, encourage your child to develop a tool with your help. Eventually, children should be developing their own tools based upon what they know about what works for them.
