Teaching Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Instructional Strategies and Practices, 2004
US Department of Education
Successful programs for children with ADHD integrate the following three components: (1) Academic Instruction; (2) Behavioral Interventions; and (3) Classroom Accommodations. This document describes how to integrate a program using these three components and provides suggestions for practices that can help children with ADHD in a classroom setting. It should be emphasized that many of the techniques suggested have the additional benefit of enhancing the learning of other children in the classroom who do not have ADHD. In addition, while they have been used most widely with children at the elementary level, the following practices are useful for older students as well. By incorporating techniques from these three areas into their everyday instructional and classroom management practices, teachers will be empowered to improve both the academic performance and the behavior of their students with ADHD. In doing so, teachers will create an enhanced learning environment for all students.
