Whether your child has ADHD or not, most can use a little help with the changes and adjustments that going back-to-school requires. This episode is chock full of advice on how to set students up for success during the first few weeks of school and onward.

In the first half of the episode Dr. Hallowell speaks with ADHD parent coach, Cindy Goldrich, about parenting the child you have, and ways to get all kids back into the swing of things. They talk about goal setting, not just for the kids, but for the parents too!

In the second half of the show, we have two teachers (one high school teacher and one elementary school teacher) in the studio who share their thoughts on what specifically kids can do to start the school year off right. We suggest listening to this episode all together, as a family!
