Homework Tips for Parents for Children with Learning Disabilities

1. Show an interest in your child's homework assignments. Ask about the subjects and the work to be done.

2. Be a role model -- take the opportunity to read a book or newspaper while your child studies. Reading together helps create a learning atmosphere.

3. Teach your child how to be organized. Be sure he or she keeps a homework assignment book.

4. Eliminate as many distractions as possible during study time.

5. Develop a strategy for dealing with homework. Find a plan that works for your family and stick with it.

6. Try to relate the homework to your child's everyday life. For instance, fractions and measurements can be learned as the child prepares a favorite food.

7. Encourage your child to establish a regular time to do homework. Developing a schedule might help avoid procrastination.

8. Meet with your child's teacher to discuss the nature of the approach to reading, spelling and other topics that your child is being taught.

9. Make sure your child has a specific place to do homework that offers ample lighting, minimal noise and plenty of work space.

10. Praise your child for successfully completing homework. Nothing builds self-esteem like praise from parents.
