I'm sharing an article that speaks to the impact music has on children with ADHD. As a clinician who works with students with ADHD regularly, many have shared their experience with me that background music while completing homework is helpful and actually improves focus. Now I see the research is here to back up the insight that many of my clients have.
Although distracting for those without ADHD, music serves as constant background noise and is better than silence. So, parents, when your child puts on the music to do homework, let him/her, and in fact, encourage it!
