This comprehensive photocopiable book provides users with comprehensive in-class support materials for working with students who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It takes an inclusion approach and is based on the belief that all students are equal members of the school and that structures of school organisation should enhance the learning of all students, including those with special needs.
The resource is divided into 10 sections which support work in the areas of attention and learning; organisation; impulsive behaviour and social behaviour.
An extensive introduction provides user-friendly information about ADHD and covers some of the current thinking about ways to work in the classroom with students who have been diagnosed with it. Each of the sections is prefaced by comprehensive teacher notes, practical ideas, tips and implementation steps. These notes are supplemented by useful templates and student activities that teachers and teacher aides can tailor for their own circumstances.
The material in Teaching Students with ADHD will be of benefit to:
- Classroom teachers who wish to better manage students in their class with ADHD
- Specialist staff who design interventions for students with learning or behaviour difficulties
- Teacher aides, learning support staff and special needs educators seeking to develop programmes to support particular students
- Parents endeavouring to collaborate with the school to ensure the needs of their child are being effectively met
- Guidance staff and teachers responsible for student management who wish to ensure all avenues of assistance for students are attempted
