Part #7 - Academic Instruction for Students with ADHD
NASET ADHD SERIES
Teachers can help prepare their students with ADHD to achieve by applying the principles of effective teaching when they introduce, conduct, and conclude each lesson. Students with ADHD learn best with a carefully structured academic lesson-one where the teacher explains what he or she wants children to learn in the current lesson and places these skills and knowledge in the context of previous lessons. Effective teachers preview their expectations about what students will learn and how they should behave during the lesson. The discussion and techniques that follow in this issue of NASET’s ADHD Series pertain to the instructional process in general (across subject areas) for students with ADHD.
