Helping Students with ADHD in the Age of Digital Distraction
Hart Barnett, Juliet E.
Physical Disabilities: Education and Related Services, v36 n2 p1-7 2017
A substantial number of students struggle with sustained attention in today's schools, including those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Both traditional and technology-driven strategies and tools are available to address the attention needs of students with ADHD and other students who struggle with attention in the classroom. By incorporating targeted environmental, organizational, and instructional techniques and tech apps into their everyday instructional and classroom management practices, teachers can improve the sustained attention and academic performance of all students. In doing so, teachers can create an equitable and enhanced learning environment in this age of increasing digitalization.
