Teaching Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Instructional Strategies and Practices
US Department of Education
This guide outlines a series of instructional strategies that have proven to be successful in educating children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However, these techniques are also highly useful for all children. The three main components of a successful strategy for educating children with ADHD are academic instruction, behavioral interventions, and classroom accommodations. 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. This guide is the second in a series of three publications that addresses issues related to the instruction of children with ADHD. The first is "Identifying and Treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Resource for School and Home" [ED495450]. Teachers and others are encouraged to consult and use these publications to assist in the instruction of children with ADHD.
