The truth is.....I really have no idea! I approach each student with the belief that the traditional classroom has not worked for them and they do not trust the traditional methods of learning that they have experienced so far as a student. I also take into account their extreme negative self-concept that generally comes from seeing others succeed where they have been unable to do so. So, when I go into teaching, I have to #1 find what they are interested in and #2 make those things teachable in a way they get.
But there is another very significant part to teaching kids with ADHD that I think instinctively do but other teachers find invaluable. In an effort to help those teachers, I have found a list of accommodations that best suit ADHD kids from Kindergarten to High School and will help teachers and parents who are not familiar or comfortable with kids with ADHD or want to know how best to accomodate them.
