My daughter is going into second grade and we have been homeschooling for the past two years. We used Sonlight for Kindergarden and Abeka for 1st grade. I enjoyed Abeka but I think my daughter found it to be very uninteresting. I am interested to see what others with ADHD children used for subjects like phonics and reading and writing. We are using MathUSee for math and that she seems to enjoy. She is very hands on and creative. Any suggestions???

thanks for the answers. We've decided to move forward with HS'ing in July and I'm assembling things that keep him on focus.

I have two children on the autism spectrum, one with ADHD. I have been researching curriculums for my Pre-K son, and most folks with ADHD kiddos tend to do 'All About Reading' and 'All About Spelling.' These use a multi-sensory method called Orton-Gillingham. They are also strong academic programs while helping the ADHD kids avoid over-stimulation and stemming behaviors

I have been homeschooling my son since 3rd grade (now in 6th). I am personally not a specific curriculum type of mom. I use lots of different things for my son and I change things up a bit at times.

As an example, right now we are using Easy Peasy Language Arts
Khan University and my husband are teaching math!
We are using Teens Health (kidshealth.org/teen) for health. We rotate on doing health and science. He also does science stuff through our homeschool co-op.
For history right now we are really studying each of the US States and he does his own research and fills out a questioner that I borrowed from a friend. Then I test him on what he has learned.

Next semester, things might be totally different though!

The only other suggestion that I have is to not stress if she does not sit down and can not be still. Let her move around a bit!
