Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v27 n1 p26-31 2014
Due to federal mandates, physical educators are now expected to teach a wide range of students, spanning the entirety of the learning continuum, in their classes. These mandates support and encourage students with disabilities to learn and grow in inclusive settings alongside their general education peers. Students diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) specifically can pose a challenge to physical educators because they are inattentive or have trouble following directions. However, there are strategies that physical educators can use to help these students reach their full potential. This article shows the many benefits that physical education has for students with ADHD.
