Based on field-tested strategies for use with learners with ADHD, the book provides a brief overview of the specific learning needs of these students, as well as a wide variety of tools that teachers can immediately pull out and use in the classroom and parents can use in the home setting.
Each tool is explained in a brief how-to section that includes specific information on adapting the tool based on the individual student's needs. The book covers topics that include observing and collecting data on students, creating schedules, assessing a child's strengths, refocusing a child's attention, managing difficult behaviors, implementing calming techniques, providing motivation, and improving study and homework skills. A collection of worksheets, forms, checklists, charts, website listings, and other tools are included as reproducible pages.
