Are you struggling with students who have ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?
There is likely to be at least one student in any mainstream class with ADHD, an evolving concept that affects pupils' learning, concentration, behavior and social relationships. In order to offer effective support and maximize the learning potential of all students in your classroom you will need to understand the different needs of all children, but perhaps especially those with ADHD.
With sections covering the background to ADHD, the school setting and the wider context of home life, The ADHD Toolkit ensures excellent practice for working with students with ADHD. It provides:
- examples of successful tried-and-tested strategies
- activities to use with children
- information on referral pathways
- advice on working with parents
- case studies to facilitate discussion
A substantial bank of electronic resource materials is available from the SAGE website to use with the book, including PowerPoint presentations and a range of photocopiable sheets. Packed with the most up-to-date information and rooted in real-life examples from the author's own experiences and research, this is the complete resource you need to help you work successfully with students who have ADHD.
Every class teacher, SENCO and teaching assistant in a primary or secondary school will find this an invaluable and supportive guide.
