Chesapeake Inst., Washington, DC.
This paper provides guidelines on how to identify and work with students with attention deficit disorder (ADD). It begins by outlining common symptoms of ADD in the classroom and general principles for the incorporation of medication into school life. The paper presents features of schools successful in dealing with ADD. School-wide suggestions emphasize individualizing classroom and lesson planning, using cooperative learning, pairing ADD students with non-ADD peers, and using checklists to formalize communication between the school and the home. Further suggestions provide for serving the student with ADD within the classroom context and as an individual learner. Principles of behavior management effective in working with students with ADD are also presented. (PB)
