Traditional Classroom Model - Not for ADHD Students!



   

      

Doesn't Work for ADHD Student                            Best for ADHD Student

30+ students per classroom                                  Less than 20 Students
Whole word learning                                             Phonics
Rows                                                                  Work/Study Groups
Level playing field idea                                          Learning differences accepted
Low stimulation room                                            High stimulation room
Primarily auditory methods                                    Multi-Sensory Methods
ADHD = “Developmental Lag”                                ADHD = Neuro-Biological Disorder
Children are "little adults"                                      Each child an Individual
ADHD Child - “immature”                                       Teach appropriate behaviors
"Goals and Objectives" Emphasis                          Evidence-Based Remedial Methods
Motivation/Responsibility assumed                         Teach Motivation/Responsibility 
                                                                                        (ADHD student’s core problem)
