Adhd teaching strategies

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd teaching strategies


Avatar f tn old nephew who has dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, auditory processing disorder and cognitive processing disorder. He has so much against him and he feels that he will never learn. Book learning is not helping him. He has gone from 2nd grade reading to fifth, but doesn't understand or comprehend all the time. What he learns one day, he forgets that next. It is frustrating for him more than me. I don't know how to help him.
Avatar f tn html And, of course, medication is only part of the answer - strategies on dealing with ADHD on both a personal and academic level are as important or more so then the meds. This is a wonderful site! This link to behavior at school, but you can search for almost anything you want to improve. The link is: I have lots and lots of their specific links bookmarked because they are so good.
Avatar f tn Whether its stimulant meds or natural meds, they are only a partial answer. Teaching your child coping strategies for ADHD is also extremely important. And as I have said numerous times over the last 5 years, no one has ever posted about a natural medication that has worked, but outside of the expense it usually never hurts to try. However, there are things to avoid. Check out these links -
1543592 tn?1293386614 new to the site... experience anxiety and depression often... also diagnosed ADHD *** well so I am not sure if they are related? ... anyways.. I have just been getting this odd feeling lately that I am just going to die.. I am not suicidal in ANY form but It's constantly in the back of my head.. does this happen to any else?
Avatar f tn But the teacher has to realize the child may have AD and be willing to change her teaching strategies for the child. It may be that the current teacher is unwilling to make commendations for your granddaughter. It is typically unsettling for any child to be moved mid-year, and even more so at this grade level. However, if the teacher is making your grandchilds life miserable, then a move should be made. The kids do adapt faster to change at this age. Medication is only one option.
Avatar f tn Oh boy, as I said, there is a ton of stuff out there which I have bookmarked. So any specific areas you are interested in ...will be easier for me to send you. Just quickly, since we mentioned adult adhd/add - here are two interesting links on that. They also contain just a lot of good general overall information. https://www.additudemag.

1546912 tn?1293809481 A fruitless search for an Adult-specific ADHD forum and support community left me frustrated and cranky. Combing through general ADHD forums is -- ironically -- the worst thing for an ADHD adult who is eager to find success strategies. When I found the Mr. Tuckman's quote, I gave up the hunt and decided to put my energy into creating this forum. Please participate, enjoy, and contribute to what will be a God-send for other adults.
242532 tn?1269550379 I’m going to continue talking about the stages one has to go through to be cured of the destructive emotional eating habit, and I will continue to use the comments to the last blog to illustrate what I have to say. First, I want to remind you that the cure for emotional eating is a psychological cure, and the medicine we use to cure the mind is insight.

551343 tn?1506830518 If you do decide to go the home school route (which is a tough row to hoe) I do know of an excellent book with a lot of teaching strategies. Keep in touch. If we can help, you know where to find us. Best wishes!!!!!!
Avatar n tn The other children in these classes are only ADHD. The pdoc is teaching us to use reinforcement to obtain the behavior we want. Last night I was very ill, but my son insisted I take him to the store to buy the reinforcer he had earned. He has no concern for my feelings. I try hard not to raise my voice at him but it is very difficult. My question is: Are the discipline/parenting techniques for ADHD the same for Bipolar Disorder? Thanks.
Avatar f tn My son (8) has been diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6. Hadn't use any medication till a week ago. We are trying Straterra and I'm hoping it will help in class with his focus/attention. He is significantly behind and am concerned with him repeating 3rd grade. I know it will crush his self-esteem. Which is why we are trying medication as advised by his doctor. I know he has something else in addition to the ADHD, some kind of learning disability.
Avatar n tn Another problem I am very forgetful which the dr said is also part of my ADHD and I can go on and on I have almost every symptom of ADHD which *****, but what am I going to do. I was medicated for it for a little while and my dr refuses to prescribe me meds for it. Now school became a lot more challenging because I'm not getting any help for my ADHD. It's so difficult and stressful.

1274559 tn?1284132218 I am wondering why you need to have medicine for ADHD? can you handle ADHD without medicine??? I mean is the Medicine necessary?
5084598 tn?1363360941 I am currently attending a new doctor and having her re evaluated for her adhd. I just want her to be unique and an individual. The teachers are telling me she needs to be medicated and the school is still new to her. Her new doctor when evaluation of her said she had no apparent symptoms???
Avatar n tn To punish him for it was insult on top of injury---- so I took the approach of teaching him. Teaching him personal space boundaries with other kids and safe and appropriate ways to get input into the nervous system was my goal. I've not had a complaint at school yet in two years (he is now 6.5 and in first grade/diagnosed at age 4). I'd work with choices for him in the daycare or school setting. He may need that little bit of control to comply.
Avatar n tn He has been seen by a neurologist, psychiatrist and developmental therapist and they came together and diagnosed him with over 10 different criteria meeting ADHD, Opositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, Language Disorder, Aspergers, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Seperation Disorder, Mood Disorder, Borderline Disorder, Multiple Complex Disorder and Psycosis.
Avatar f tn For that reason, you may want to look into some strategies that you can try out at home that help teaching sharing and waiting, and then help him carry those strategies over to other settings (practice at friends’ houses, etc., and enlist the help of the teachers are his nursery to use these strategies, as well).
Avatar n tn Hi there. Well, what you describe almost sounds more like anxiety than it does adhd symptoms. My older son has sensory which is very similar to to adhd, it's neurological in nature as adhd is, and he also has anxiety. The self soothing is something he had to work on. Are you talking about when he is upset, calming himself back down? With my son, we worked with an occupational therapist for strategies for this.
