And the educators who recognize this and who work to explain concepts, illustrate lessons, and engage students in new and novel ways can unlock amazing learning for children with ADHD.

5 Comments & Reviews

  1. A dream teacher would be someone who works with positive reinforcement instead of negative reinforcement techniques. Someone who loves teaching children and sees ADHD kids as simply learners that need different ways to grasp the same information.

  2. I have ADD as does my 5th grade son. I was diagnosed at age 40, he was in 2nd grade when he was diagnosed. His teacher was fantastic and was the one who thought he had it, she got the ball rolling and worked with my son to help him be successful and gain confidence!

  3. My dream teacher was my high school drama/tech theatre teacher. I knew I had ADHD yet I didn’t know all the challenges and set backs I was experiencing until he pulled me aside and helped me. He was very patient with me and helped me with regular high school challenges that were exaggerated out more because of my social anxiety and ADHD, such as having a hard time making friends and acting impulsively.

  4. I would love a teacher to know that my son can learn – he’s just needs to learn in other ways that help keep his interest. I hope as he gets older his teachers will be able to help him reach his full potential.

  5. My fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Smith was the absolute best. In class she spoke with such poise, taking her time with each student, explaining and going over subjects we struggled with, even staying after the bell has rung for the day. Mrs. Smith had a way making everyone feel so special. Throughout the years seeing Mrs. Smiths beaming smile in the hall always reinforced my ‘brains power.’ Love that lady.
