Children and youth with attention deficit disorder (ADD) often have serious problems in school. Inattention, impulsiveness, hyperactivity, disorganization, and other difficulties can lead to unfinished assignments, careless errors, and behavior which is disruptive to one's self and others. Through the implementation of relatively simple and straightforward accommodations to the classroom environment or teaching style, teachers can adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of students with ADD. Small changes in how a teacher approaches the student with ADD or in what the teacher expects can turn a losing year into a winning one for the child.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the most common behavioral disorder of childhood, is estimated to be found in between three to five percent of children in the United States. Although ADHD is primarily considered a childhood disorder, research shows that ADHD also manifests itself in adults. Athealth.com provides quality mental health information and services.
