For best results, build in a break!

Know when to give your child a break. Children with executive function challenges often have to apply a great deal of effort to stay focused on their work, and this can be very tiring. Build in breaks to your child’s homework schedule and allow her to recharge for a few minutes before getting back down to work. Offer a snack or a drink, or even allow for some computer time as appropriate. Just set a time limit and help your child stick to it.
