Support in the classroom
Children with ADHD can be successful at school: different management techniques can help to encourage them and focus on their strengths. This presentation looks at examples of how to differentiate teaching techniques for different school subjects.
Developing study skills
Strong study skills at home and school are an important part of successful learning. A child with ADHD may struggle more with homework than other children. Therefore, it may be helpful for parents and teachers to monitor:
- How much homework the individual child is expected to do by all their teachers
- Whether there are alternative homework activities for the child, which achieve the same learning goals.
This presentation brings together:
- Some of the core skills that a child with ADHD may need to develop
- Support to help achieve this
- Tips on homework, organisation and rewards.
Evaluating learning, recognising progress and passing on feedback at school is particularly important. Positive comments, for even the smallest of accomplishments, can provide encouragement and as such help to improve any child’s self-esteem and motivation.
This coaching presentation gives examples of:
- Evaluating learning for children with ADHD
- Providing feedback in the classroom.
