Discovering Focus: Helping Students with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
Valkenburg, Jim
Learning Assistance Review, v17 n2 p43-52 Fall 2012
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a neurological disorder which effects learning and that has a confusing set of diagnostic symptoms and an even more confusing set of remedies ranging from medication to meditation to nothing at all. Current neurological research suggests, however, that there are strategies that the individual with ADD can use to focus and to learn. Recent findings about brain plasticity and how the brain processes information can offer students with ADD a variety of strategies that will help them to learn how to learn better. It is the goal of this narrative to demystify ADD and offer some possible solutions that do not cost anything but the time it takes to adapt to a more effective style of learning.
