From leading authority Dr. Russell Barkley, ADHD in the Classroom is designed to help teachers create a learning environment that is responsive to the needs of all students, including those with ADHD. Scenes from an actual classroom illustrate problems that teachers typically encounter and bring effective solutions to life. Viewers see firsthand how to incorporate social skills into the curriculum and how to implement such behavior management methods as color charts and signs, point system, token economy, and turtle-control technique. The video also features helpful graphics, interviews with teachers and other education experts, and informative commentary from Dr. Barkley.
"Helps teachers to better understand ADHD, and equips them to meet the difficult challenge of creating an educational environment that addresses the needs of the ADHD child without neglecting the other students."
-School Library Journal
"The classroom footage is well done, with teachers and students seemingly unaffected by the camera's presence....An excellent introduction to the subject."
-Video Rating Guide for Libraries
