Helping Students with ADHD
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11% of children ages 4-17 have been diagnosed with ADHD. October is ADHD Awareness Month, and since nearly every staff member will
interact with students diagnosed with ADHD, it’s a good time to make sure that they have a foundational understanding of ADHD and are familiar with the strategies and interventions that can be used to help these students be more successful.
Strategies for Better Outcomes
Children with ADHD may be eligible for special education services, but there are also many evidence-based classroom interventions that can help these students be successful in the general education classroom.
Download the Helping Students with ADHD Tip Sheet for helpful information that can be shared with your staff, including tips about:
- Patience and persistence
- Behavior modification
- Positive behavior supports
- Individual interventions
