Check out my first guest blog post for Free Spirit Publishing. They asked me to write 10 strategies to help students with ADHD cope with frustration.
Over the last 20 years, I have worked with many youth with ADHD who act out in the following ways at school:
- skipping school
- throwing desks and chairs in class
- punching holes in walls
- swearing at their teachers
In this blog, I share the best strategies I’ve found to help these students manage frustration at school.
Like their neurotypical peers, these kids also want to do the right thing. They just need more support.
10 Strategies To Help ADHD Students
Here is a sneak peek at the 10 strategies that can help students (and teachers) with ADHD cope with frustration.
- Develop a strong relationship with the student
- Teach at the student’s academic level
- Use technology in the classroom
- Avoid power struggles
- Praise and reward – but don’t go overboard
- Avoid using direct commands
- Allow students the opportunity to move around
- Keep feedback neutral
- Keep classroom rules simple
- Provide daily incentives and rewards
