Description
Summary:Children with Attention Deficit Disorders, like hyperactivity, cannot be effectively taught in a regular classroom. For their development they need other methods which help them to rise their self-esteem and attention. These children are unable to pay attention to the teacher's questions. Because their learning techniques or strategies differ from those of the other children. They need instructions or assignements in small steps because their brains will go into overload if the teacher gives them too much information at a time. Teaching in a class in which there is an ADD/ADHD child is not easy. These children are different from those who have behaviour problems. Their behaviour problem is connected to their disability of paying attention or to remain still. Most classes have to face such children, because nowadays the number of ADD/ADHD children is increasing. But these are special methods at hand which can help them to become able to learn how to behave in the class.
