Classroom Interventions for children with ADHD

As a School Psychologist, I am constantly asked to help develop classroom interventions for students with attention difficulties. Sometimes this is part of an IEP, a 504 Plan, or just early interventions to use with a general education student. To date, I don’t have a good compilation of some of the best interventions. I tend to work from my memory or use other guides that have been created. One of the best I’ve seen is 101 Elementary School Classroom Interventions from It is a book, filled with information on interventions for classroom teachers. There are general tips for the classroom teacher on setting up the classroom, presenting your lesson,worksheets and tests, and then specific interventions on organization, behavioral interventions, increasing time on task, dealing with impulsive behaviors, and helping students stay focused. If you are a classroom teacher, this is a must read. If you are a parent of a student with attention difficulties, you might consider sharing this resouce with your child’s teacher

    There has been a lot of insite into this and there are many simple solutions to dealing with a child with ADHD. Yet it’s still so misunderstood and over-diagnosed.

    The above thought is smart and doesn’t require any further addition.
    It’s perfect thought from my side. A very smart and diplomatic answer. It’s really appreciable and general.
