Description - Educating Children with AD/HD by Paul Cooper
It is estimated that between 3 per cent and 5 per cent of pupils in the UK have Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). Due to the disruptive nature of the disorder, AD/HD in just one child can affect an entire class. Including children with AD/HD without adversely affecting other pupils is very challenging, and teaching AD/HD children can sometimes seem impossible. This is comprehensive guide to including and educating children with AD/HD. Chapters cover: the nature of AD/HD; why children with AD/HD find schooling difficult; making the classroom work - techniques and practical guides for use in the classroom; making the curriculum work; social skills, discipline and behaviour management; helping children understand AD/HD; and teachers and doctors working together. The guide is a whole-school resource and includes photocopiable sections and case study material.
