Here is a wonderful, brilliant and one of the most practical articles I have read about dealing with AD/HD. As an AD/HD Coach and a former Special Education Teacher, I highly recommend reading Katherine Ellison’s article, We’re Not Paying Enough Attention to AD/HD.
My favorite paragraph: “In the short term, for all schools, a few simple changes would go a long way. One would be to provide more training for teachers in smarter ways to deal with children with learning problems. Another: limit the scads of often rote and unnecessary homework that places disproportional stress on children with ADHD and their parents. Finally, schools could let students e-mail their homework to teachers, eliminating chances of loss.”
