Attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) is more complex and nuanced than most people realize. Its symptoms may be mild, moderate, or severe. More often than not, it coexists with other conditions, including learning disabilities. And many of its challenges are “invisible” or easily blamed on laziness.
Though teachers may recognize that students with ADHD forget to write down assignments, lose completed homework, and need fidgets to improve focus, many educators are frustrated and confounded by not-so-obvious ADHD behaviors when they inevitably pop up. And that is where this handout comes in.
Thanks to renowned ADHD experts Chris Zeigler Dendy, author of Teenagers with ADD & ADHD: A Guide for Parents and Teaching Teens with ADD, ADHD, & Executive Function Deficits, and her son Alex, this download is available as a tremendous resource for parents and educators alike.
Download this resource and share it with your child’s teacher to promote a better understanding of the ADHD brain — and how symptoms impact executive functions and emotions. The first step toward greater learning is greater understanding.
