Excellence in Education Journal, v6 n2 p32-49 Sum 2017
This study investigated the learning style preferences of students with ADHD in elementary schools and how these preferences affect their academic performance, as measured by the Elementary Learning Styles Assessment Tools (Dunn, Rundle, & Burke, 2007). The results showed that students with ADHD in this study prefer a quiet and warm classroom with traditional furniture. In addition, results also showed that when students with ADHD are taught using their learning preferences, they tend to make academic gains. A three month follow-up assessment showed that academic performance improved for students whose teachers incorporated students' learning preferences into their teaching. Curriculum implications for practice are discussed.
