ADHD Learning: Build on Strengths, Not Deficits
Instead of dwelling on deficiencies, focus on your ADHD child’s talents to help him grow and learn in the classroom.
Set a Goal Together
Teachers and parents should ask a child to list the things she is good at, what she'd like to be better at, and what she can teach others to do. Think about assigning a writing activity in which students set personal and academic goals, highlighting how the skills and talents they already possess will help them grow and accomplish these goals.
