Imagen Learning with ADHD
Picture sitting in a classroom busting from the seams with energy, not being able to control impulse movements, racing thoughts, and feeling trapped to a chair the whole day. That is what it is like for a child with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a condition with the brain that causes problems with focus, the ability to sit still and effects self-control (Kids Health,2018). A child with the disorders brain can act differently to much information all at once can cause unneeded stress on the child struggling with ADHD. ADHD is one the most commonly diagnosed disorders affecting school-aged children. Teachers often come to a classroom setting without the full understanding of what ADHD is and how it affects children, leaving them unsure of how to help the child learn and thrive in the classroom. Schools and teachers often blame the child or parent when the child is not doing well in the class, but, sometimes it’s the classroom setting that needs to change for the child.

Like people without ADHD, it is always easier for someone to learn something they are passionate about. When trying to teach a child with ADHD it is important to engage with their passion, for instance, using stories, games or even videos to help the child learn. Technology is used in almost every classroom and can even be used to help a child with ADHD learn. Everyone has a different way of learning and no to children learn the same way. Teaching should be no different and should not be one size fits all, but rather figuring out what works for each child and trying to utilize it. With the way technology has grown there is a way to get on each child’s level and h...
