For many kids diagnosed with ADHD, the traditional school classroom is not conducive to learning. Listening to lectures, taking notes, writing papers, filling in notebooks, and taking tests are not natural functions of learning for these students. They need to touch, experience, and interact with the concepts and real-life issues they are studying. For them, a more impactful method of education is Project-Based Learning (PBL).
Though some elementary and secondary schools integrate PBL methods, not all do. The good news is that parents and teachers can boost any child’s education with PBL by following the strategies presented here.
