When students with ADHD are in the classroom, teachers are doubly challenged. They have to create an environment that addresses the needs of the child with ADHD, without diminishing the needs of the other children. This video is designed specifically to help teachers with their students with ADHD, thereby providing a better learning environment for the entire class.
The program features Russell A. Barkley, a noted authority on ADHD, who describes the disorder and brings the audience into a classroom of students with ADHD. Viewers will see the problems teachers encounter with children with ADHD and the solutions that behavior management can provide. The program features interviews with teachers and other education experts combined with helpful visual graphics and illustrations.
An effective four-step plan for avoiding potential problems is presented, and the incorporation of social skills into the curriculum is demonstrated. The audience sees firsthand how to implement such behavior management methods as color charts and signs, point system, token economy, and turtle- control technique.
An informative resource on its own, the accompanying 42-page manual reviews the characteristics of ADHD in detail and covers educational management strategies. A bonus feature is an encapsulation of Russell Barkley's insightful new theory on the nature of ADHD. Appendices provide information on medications and a suggested reading list with recommendations on books for teachers and school professionals, as well as for children, their siblings, and parents. Easy to use, the list of publishers and sources of information includes addresses.
