These practical resources have been designed in conjunction with teachers and learning support assistants to support children who have ADHD. These resources focus on Behaviour, Impulsiveness, Concentration, Noise Levels, Rewards and Instruction.
Some children will:
- Not ‘hear’ when spoken to and not respond to instruction
- Be disorganised and find things distract them from a set task
- Forget to finish a task or activity and leave it without cleaning up or tidying
- Interrupt conversations and talk without thinking
- Demand attention but do not consider what you are doing or if you can be interrupted
- Often say what they think, which may be embarrassing or seemingly rude
- Find sleep can difficult and find concentration tiring
- Physically run, jump, leap and may put themselves into dangerous situations
These are just a few of the traits associated to ADHD. In the classroom it can be very time consuming and difficult to deal with their impulsive behaviour and seeming lack of self control.
