Utilize technology to support executive function skills

Utilize technology to help your child manage her time and take the onus off of you to be your child’s reminder service. For example, if your child needs help remembering to bring all of her homework, folders, and books to school each day, help her set up a reminder on her phone or tablet that goes off at the same time every day to remind her to check her backpack. You can even use the “note” feature on many devices to keep a list of everything she needs right there on the reminder screen! It beats having to nag your child every day, and it might even save you that panicked drive to school later that day to deliver her homework or lunch!
