UTL 341R – Overcoming Reading Difficulties Web Bibliography September 29, 2009 Web Bibliography Site #1 – Teaching Students with ADD/ADHD; Sponsored by Help Guide 1. Web Address: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/adhd_add_teaching_strategies.htm 2. Examples: a. Teaching techniques for students with ADD/ADHD b. Teaching techniques that help students with ADD/ADHD focus and maintain their concentration on your lesson and their work can be beneficial to the entire class. c. Starting a lesson i. Signal the start of a lesson with an aural cue, such as an egg timer, a cowbell or a horn. (You can use subsequent cues to show much time remains in a lesson.) ii.

Tell students exactly what materials they’ll need. iv. Establish eye contact with any student who has ADD/ADHD d. Conducting the lesson i. Keep instructions simple and structured. ii.

accommodations for the classroom for students with ADD/ADHD. So many children these days are either diagnosed with a form of ADD/ADHD and/or just have problems staying engaged in activities, and I found that this site would be very helpful in finding ways to motivate these students. The site also had a large section on what parents can do to help their student who is diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD. I thought that this section could be very useful if a parent came to me and asked me what they could do to help their child. At the end of the article there was links to many other sites for helping students with ADD/ADHD as well as a series of other articles published by the site Site #2: A Dyslexic Child in the Classroom: A Guide for Teachers and Parents; Sponsored by Davis Dyslexia Association International
