Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are always hearing things like “Try harder,” “Pay attention,” and “Sit still.” And they’d love to do these things-but they don’t know how!  

In this course, you’ll discover practical ways to help children with ADHD control their behavior and succeed in school. And you’ll be learning from the real experts: the children themselves. You’ll find out how Kristi controls her behavior and how Wanda handles boredom. You’ll see how Adam jump-starts his thought processes, how Harry satisfies his need to move without bothering his teacher, and how Darren aces his homework. 

In addition, you’ll hear from parents and teachers about the amazing benefits of relatively simple adaptations in space, structure, rules, and expectations. You’ll also explore myths and facts about ADHD and see how this condition affects motivation, activity level, attention, and memory.  

These lessons will arm you with powerful strategies you can put to use immediately in your own classroom. By the time you’re done, you’ll have the skills and knowledge you need to help students with ADHD compensate for their problems and achieve their full potential.
