Overcoming Executive Function Deficits with Students with ADHD
Johnson, Joseph; Reid, Robert
Theory Into Practice, v50 n1 p61-67 2011
Academic problems are common among students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). One reason for academic problems is the difficulties in executive functions (EF) that are necessary for complex goal-oriented behaviors. Students with ADHD often exhibit EF deficits and as a result have difficulties with tasks that require planning, organizing, maintaining effort, and monitoring activities. This article outlines how teachers can help students with ADHD overcome EF difficulties and improve their academic performance.
