Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is the most common behavioural disorder affecting up to five per cent of children in the UK. This book provides a concise and comprehensive guide to educating children with AD/HD, offering a theoretical introduction to the disorder, and practical guidance for the classroom teacher on how to support children with this condition. This practical guide is divided into three clear sections which focus on: * the nature of AD/HD and its impact on the individual in school, as well as the ways in which it can be most accurately diagnosed * the principles and practices of intervention, including specific educational interventions and behaviour management techniques * a series of case studies illustrating the nature of AD/HD and its relationship with other difficulties making suggestions for school-based interventions. Rooted in the experiences of practitioners who work with children with AD/HD every day, this book draws on up-to-date research evidence to challenge crude assumptions about AD/HD and argue that the best way to understand it is as a condition in which biological and environmental factors interact.
