Designed for teachers, this guide provides recommendations regarding identification, interventions, and follow-through procedures for working with students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in a classroom setting. Chapter 1 discusses the identification of children with ADHD and includes information on the definition of ADHD, characteristics of ADHD, and the responsibilities of the teacher and the teacher assistant team. Chapter 2 addresses assessment of children with ADHD, including the responsibilities of each of the members of the assessment team. In Chapter 3, excerpted information is provided on interventions for adapting general education classrooms, and a table provides examples of ways to accommodate the needs of children with ADHD. Material is also provided on medical interventions. The final chapter discusses follow-through. Each of the chapters closes with questions and answers on the covered topic, and a flowchart illustrates recommended procedures for the educational assessment and treatment of children with ADHD. Appendices include a federal policy bulletin on ADHD, a description of requirements under relevant federal laws, diagnostic criteria for ADHD, teaching strategies for ADHD, information on the assessment of students with ADHD, general information for parents and teachers, myths and facts about ADHD, and a resource directory.
