Teaching Kids With ADHD

Many children with ADHD show signs of the attention disorder before they reach school age. But it’s in school, when they are having trouble meeting expectations for kids in their grade, that most are referred for diagnosis.

That’s why it’s important that educators be well-informed about the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — able to recognize children who might be struggling with ADHD, but also aware that the symptoms and behaviors associated with ADHD may also have other possible explanations.
