Abstract: Why does ADHD impact on academic attainment and what can teachers do to support children with ADHD in the classroom?
The aim of this talk is to help teachers to understand the potential impact that ADHD can have on children’s educational attainment. The talk will start by introducing teachers to some recent research that explores the impact of ADHD on educational attainment in both the UK and Denmark. The talk will then briefly explore the impact of current non-pharmacological and pharmacological interventions on educational attainment, reaching the conclusion that more needs to be done. The talk will then explore the underlying causes of ADHD, which should help teachers understand ADHD from the perspective of the child with the disorder. The talk concludes with some very practical and easy to implement strategies that all teachers can utilize to help children with ADHD in their classrooms.
Dr. Daley will also give a Public Lecture on Friday, 13 July.
