What is ADHD?

 

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is a very common neurodevelopmental disorder that appears in childhood and often continues into adulthood. It is mainly characterized by three symptoms: attention deficit, impulsivity and hyperactivity. ADHD can appear with three different types of presentation, depending on the predominant symptomatology.

  • Predominant presentation of attention deficit.
  • Predominant presentation of impulsivity or hyperactivity.
  • Combined presentation of both characteristics.

In any case, it is important to know that students with ADHD will encounter more obstacles to achieve good school results, so it is necessary that the educational intervention guarantees personalized learning that takes into account the characteristics of each person.

Some recommendations to improve the care of students with ADHD by schools and teachers include:

  • Provide additional time for testing.
  • Interspersing break times between academic activities.
  • Make adaptations of content to suit personal learning style.
  • Positive feedback
  • Adapt the environment to avoid distractions
  • Use technology to support homework.
  • To have additional support to help organize time and activities.
  • Talk to students to better understand their needs.
