MANAGING ADHD Childrens
Children with ADHD work best under close monitoring and with minimal distraction. The following strategies may be helpful
- Place them closest to the teacher. This can enable discreet interaction between the teacher and help keep the child on task
- Being at the front of the class often diminishes many visual distractions, including the movement and activities of other students.
- Avoid seating children with ADHD in large cluster of tables with any students at each.
- Use displays to outline the classroom rules, assignments, tasks , daily schedule or celebrate individual student’s good work.
- Children with ADHD require regular reminders of classroom rules to consolidate tem as part of everyday school day. Frequently praise those children who are following the rules, especially those with ADHD.
- Give Corrective feedback immediately after the negative behavior is noticed.
- Be matter of fact in attitude rather than dramatic
- Use a brief and specific statement outlining a clear consequence
- Balance with rewards and positive reinforcements to acceptable behaviors
