Including Students with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Mainstream Schools
Humphrey, Neil
British Journal of Special Education, v36 n1 p19-25 Mar 2009
Around 80% of pupils with attention deficit disorders are educated in mainstream schools. The difficulties relating to inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity experienced by such pupils present mainstream educators with a unique set of challenges and opportunities. In this article, Neil Humphrey, Senior Lecturer in the Psychology of Education at the University of Manchester, presents and discusses key evidence-based strategies and approaches to facilitate the inclusion of pupils affected by attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD). These include the need to reframe AD/HD, to understand the role of medication, to minimise distractions, to provide predictability, structure and routine, and to apply cognitive and behavioural strategies.
