Teaching Students With Adhd - Attention Deficit And Hyperactivity Disorder Course
TEACHING STUDENTS WITH ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder Course For Teachers)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health condition characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. This common childhood disorder can continue into teenage and adult years. Children with ADHD typically have trouble staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behaviour, and exhibit hyperactivity (over-activity).
We have all seen that children can be inattentive, hyperactive, or impulsive sometimes, but what characterizes ADHD is the severity and continued occurrence of these behaviours. Before we can give an official diagnosis of ADHD, the child must exhibit symptoms, particularly in relation to their peers, for at least six months.
This course helps educators, better understand ADHD and the accommodations needed for students who have this disorder. These resources explain ADHD concepts and offer effective classroom management and instructional strategies that you can implement into your classroom.

Children with ADHD in the classroom who have trouble complying with rules and completing tasks can benefit from a daily report card system that sets positive behavioral goals and rewards to reinforce the behavior when they meet those goals.
The desired behaviors might be for the child to remain seated, to finish schoolwork, to raise his hand before speaking. The child receives points for successfully meeting goals, and his parents receive a daily behavior report card, enabling them to further to reinforce positive behavior in school with praise and prizes earned.
This system allows teachers to focus on what the child is doing well - rather than what he isn?t doing well. It can bolster his self-esteem and help him feel positive about school.
