Abstract/Description

Students are more frequently being diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) in schools. Unfortunately, students with ADHD are more often being prescribed medicine as a solution to their diagnosis. The concern here is that we are teaching our students that the only way of treating their diagnosis is by prescribing them medicine. Instead of showing them there are other ways they can control their impulsivity and hyperactivity, we are limiting their ability to find other tools that will help them be successful. Although studies have shown that medicine can be effective in reducing symptoms of ADHD it can have negative side effects on the social and emotional development of children. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to find teaching strategies that will help students with ADHD be successful academically and socially. This study will address the research question: What are the best teaching strategies that can help students with ADHD be successful academically and socially? The research will be conducted by observing three different elementary school classrooms, three different elementary school teachers, and their teaching strategies. The anticipated results will provide effective teaching strategies that will help students with ADHD focus, be successful academically, socially and in all aspects of life.
