Teaching Students With ADHD

Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) would like to follow directions like “Try harder.”, “Pay attention.”, and “Sit still.’, but they may not have the right strategies in their toolbox to do so. In this knowledge building course, you will discover practical ways to help children with ADHD control their behavior and succeed in school. You will learn from experts on the subject and the children themselves about how to adapt spaces, structures, rules, and expectations in order for students who experience ADHD to reach their full potential.

In this course, you will:

  • Learn from real scenarios of students with ADHD how they cope in and outside of the classroom,
  • Realize the difference between common myths attached to ADHD and the facts,
  • Apply simulations in order to understand the mind of a student with ADHD, and
  • Design your own plan for building a strategy toolbox for students with ADHD to use in their learning.
