ADHD Bill of Rightsis it right?

I can’t remember where I found this, but over the years I’ve kept it and shared it with many people.  I hope you enjoy it and will share it as well.

 

HELP ME TO FOCUS…

Please teach me through my sense of touch.

I need “hands-on” and body movements…

I NEED TO KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT…

Please give me a structured environment where there is a dependable routine.

Give me an advance warning if there will be changes.

WAIT FOR ME, I’M STILL THINKING…

Please allow me to go at my own pace.

If I’m rushed, I get confused and upset.

I’M STUCK, I CAN’T DO IT!…

Please offer me options for problem solving.

If the road is blocked, I need to know the detours.

IS IT RIGHT? I NEED TO KNOW NOW…

Please give me rich and immediate feedback on how I’m doing.

I DIDN’ KNOW I WASN’T IN MY SEAT!..

Please remind to stop, think, and act.

AM I ALMOST DONE?…

Please give me short work periods with short-term goals.

WHAT?…

Please don’t say ” I already told you that.”

Tell me again , in different words.

Give me a signal.  Draw me a symbol.

I KNOW IT’S ALL WRONG, ISN’T IT?…

Please give me praise for partial success.

Reward me for self-improvement, not just for perfection.

BUT WHY DO I ALWAYS GET YELLED AT?…

Please catch me doing something right and praise me for the specific positive behavior.

Remind me–and yourself–about my good points when I’m having a bad day.
