Tips for Teaching Kids With ADHD

Simple classroom adjustments make it easier for a teacher to work with the strengths and weaknesses of a child with ADHD.

It may be helpful for teachers to:

  • Pair written instructions with oral instructions.
  • Give clear, concise instructions.
  • Ask a volunteer in the class to repeat the directions.
  • Use a timer to help with transitions and organizations.
  • Speak when the child is paying attention.
  • Set up clear rules of behavior and consequences for breaking these rules.
  • Set up a program that rewards appropriate behavior.
  • Seat the child near a good role model or near the teacher.
  • Establish a nonverbal cue to get the child’s attention.
  • Establish a routine so the child knows what to expect (this may be a daily agenda or checklist that can be posted visibly in the classroom).
