ADHD can prove a challenge to both students and teachers alike. We can provide you with the tools to help your students with ADHD succeed.
ADHD is thought to affect between 3 and 9% of school age children.
Children and young people with ADHD are often inattentive which affects their ability to listen well, get started on and keep focused on tasks, and their short-term memory and time management skills. Others will also have hyperactive and impulsive traits that further compromise the above and lead to them distracting themselves and others.
These pervasive difficulties can result in academic under achievement or failure, poor self esteem, social and emotional problems and peer relationship issues. In 70% of cases, someone with ADHD will have a co-existing or overlapping condition e.g. ASD, Dyslexia, anxiety.
Having ADHD can significantly impact on the ability to engage successfully in Education, from primary school through to Higher Education.
