From time to time, most students will have trouble sitting still, paying attention, or controlling their impulses – as part of normal development. Whilst most students gradually grow out of such behaviours, students with ADHD do not. Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a type of neurodevelopmental disorder, which means there is atypical growth and development of the brain or central nervous system resulting in their abnormal functioning.
ADHD is defined by a pattern of behaviour involving inattention, disorganization and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity. A student can have symptoms in one or both categories of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity to receive the diagnosis of ADHD. The diagnosis is generally made by the age of 12 and continue into adulthood. This workshop will provide a range of practical classroom strategies for teaching students with developmental disabilities (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy) and ADHD.
