Finding a good planner is a challenge, especially for students with ADHD or executive function issues. Many go through several different types of planners from the office supply store, trying to find one that is a good fit.
I highly recommend the 360 Thinking Academic Planner. I’ve never seen another planner like it.
What makes it special?
- A “homework to do” section, including prompts to fill out what the student needs to accomplish the task, when the assignment is due, an estimate of how long it will take, and what the student needs to do to turn it in.
- A “commitments” section for things like tutoring, music lessons, or sports practice.
- Fully customizable date and day, so it can be used when needed. No wasted space.
- A “chill” section so students can plan their down time as well.
- Room for notes.
- A section that looks like a typical planner with hours marked off from 7 am until 10 pm (a much bigger time range than most planners!)

This kind of planner works well with the kind of coaching my team does with students to help them not only record their assignments, but also plan ahead with all the details needed to be successful.
