ADHD & LD: Classroom Strategies at Your Fingertips is an invaluable quick-reference classroom tool for teachers, paraeducators/paraprofessionals, and all who serve students with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and other learning disabilities (LD) in schools. This newly updated, six-page (tri-fold) laminated guide by Sandra Rief is also an excellent teacher-training / professional development resource for educators in both general education and special education classrooms.
This guide provides concise answers to the critical questions: What is ADHD/ADD? What is LD? The guide defines and describes these disorders in practical terms, provides a list of key characteristics, explains different iterations of the conditions, identifies common treatments, and reviews IEP (Individual Education Program) / Section 504 eligibility criteria.
Pages 2-6 describe practical and effective strategies that teachers (along with teaching assistants, paraeducators/paraprofessionals, aides, etc.) in both general and special education classrooms can use to meet the needs of students with ADHD and LD.
Teachers will learn strategies for;
- Getting and maintaining students’ attention;
- Differentiating instruction;
- Improving students’ organization, study skills, and written language proficiency;
- Establishing effective collaborative relationships.
By offering teachers quick access to evidence-based strategies and tips for overcoming common challenges associated with educating students with ADHD/ADD and learning disabilities, this guide is an indispensable tool for the classroom educator.
