Purchase 100 Ideas for Supporting Pupils with ADHD
Do you need a gift idea for your child’s teacher? 100 Ideas for Supporting Pupils with ADHD is the book for you! This pint-sized resource offers sound advice for managing a classroom with children who have ADHD, or, for that matter, who have various learning styles and challenges.
The book’s sections, like “Lesson Time” and “Enhancing Self-Esteem and Social Skills,” make it easy to find a topic for a quick answer or suggestion. Some of the ideas are food for thought, helping a teacher reframe certain
behaviors; others spell out concrete strategies for planning the classroom layout or
helping with handwriting. Each one offers an explanation of the underlying problem and suggestions that will produce positive change.
I appreciated the resources sprinkled along the way, as well as thoughts on how to bridge that essential home-school connection with the use of a contract and a behavior plan.
