Teaching Mathematics to Attention Deficit Disorder Students.
Land, Warren A.; Edwards, Kim
The number of school age children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) has increased over the past decade to 10-20% of the elementary school population and is expected to continue to grow. The need to understand these children and effectively teach them is obvious. This paper examines the research literature to determine the best and most current methods available for teaching mathematics to children with ADD. Suggestions include close communication between home and school and an active learning format that uses manipulatives. Reciprocal peer tutoring can also be effective. ADD students benefit most from highly structured activities and careful attention to meaning and understanding. (MKR)
