All teachers should be aware that it takes a child with ADHD three or four times longer to complete homework than it takes a child without a learning challenge. This ongoing struggle often causes stress and conflict within a home, triggering a tense relationship between a parent and a child.

Realize that students with ADHD who receive medication during the school day (to help them focus and stay on-task) often do not receive medication in the evening. Students with ADHD are in class during their optimal production times, yet will not manage to complete their work.
~Sandra Rief, M.A.

It takes ADHD children three times longer to complete homework.

Teachers should make adjustments for students with learning challenges and never use homework as punishment. They should differentiate between school work and home work and ensure the latter is relevant review material; parents should not have to teach new concepts to their child. In addition, teachers should remember that some children are medicated during school hours but weaned off of it at home as night approaches.

Key Takeaways:

It takes children with learning obstacles longer to learn objectives.
Less homework is not only better for students but also parents.
Teachers are trying to make sure that homework is something needed rather than busy work.
