How can we help our kids remember stuff?
And more importantly…
How can we help ourselves remember stuff?

Aand thanks to a listener’s email, we find out about a new Illinois School Code that requires ADHD training for teachers…
Illinois School Code: 105 ILCS 5/10-20.36
The school board has adopted and implemented a policy that prohibits any disciplinary action that is based totally or in part on the refusal of a student’s parent or guardian to administer or consent to the administration of psychotropic or psychostimulant medication as defined by the above referenced section to the student.
(Note: The policy must require that at least once every 2 years, certified school personnel and administrators receive in-service training on current best practices regarding the identification and treatment of ADD and ADHD, the application of non-aversive behavioral interventions in the school environment and the use of psychotropic or psychostimulant medication for school age children.)
