Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
A Practical Guide for Teachers, 2nd Edition
Routledge – 2002 – 112 pages
This is a clear and concise guide to classroom practice for teachers dealing with pupils with attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder, a condition that is estimated to affect on average one in every twenty-five children. In this new and revised edition, the authors present in an accessible style and with regard for the everyday realities of the classroom life: key issues commonly raised by teachers about AD/HD; sources of information on the nature and assessment of AD/HD; advice to teachers on how to communicate with both parents and professionals; and practical classroom strategies and interventions for effectively tackling the condition.
All teachers of pupils in the 5-16 age range will benefit from the explanation and advice on AD/HD offered in this resource book. It will be of particular interest to SENCOs, teachers concerned with Home School Liaison and those concerned with emotional and behavioral difficulties in the classroom.
