Breaking Down ADHD: Understanding and Supporting Children with Special Needs in the Classroom
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and adults, characterized by symptoms of inattention, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. As a teacher, it is important to understand the challenges that children with ADHD face and provide them with the necessary support to succeed in the classroom. Strategies such as creating a structured and predictable environment, using visual aids, providing positive reinforcement, and collaborating with parents and other professionals can help support children with ADHD and promote their success in the classroom. By breaking down ADHD and implementing effective strategies, teachers can help children with special needs reach their full potential and succeed in their educational journey.
