Young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often present with challenging behaviours in the classroom. But the nature of their symptoms means that they can’t help their behaviour and need additional support to be able to learn effectively.
While teaching a class, teachers must ensure that they can still help these pupils overcome their barriers to learning.
This unit develops understanding of this condition, as well as providing practical advice on how to support the learning of pupils with ADHD.
Aims and outcomes
- Understand what ADHD is and how it manifests in pupils.
- Identify how it may affect pupils’ learning.
- Support pupils with ADHD to overcome barriers to learning and achieve expected levels of progress.
