"One of the most important things one can do to help promote the healthy development of a child with ADHD is to carefully monitor how he or she is doing at school,” says Dr. David Rabiner of Duke University. Dr. Rabiner has developed a simple system that parents can use to monitor the effectiveness of ADHD treatments. Check out the article "How Do I Know If My Child’s Treatment Is Working?” to learn more about his program.

(1) Nancy (NJ) says:

A weekly journal with the teacher and any in-school therapist helps us track the effectiveness of treatment. There is also a quarterly reporting form to rate progress from the school therapists. Outside therapists report to us monthly on progress. You must stay on all involved in your child’s care to do this (report to you; rank your child’s progress); they don’t necessarily do it voluntarily.
