ADCET in Review - Resources to support students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is considered a neurodevelopmental disorder. The symptoms of ADHD vary from person to person and management of symptoms can differ depending on age of diagnosis, types of interventions and co-morbidities.
People with ADHD can be creative problem solvers, good public speakers, energetic and enthusiastic, have good conceptual skills and intuition, as well as have difficulty paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviours and maintaining focus on tasks.
Students with ADHD are not all alike and adjustments need to be tailored to meet the individual's needs. We have produced a range of resources that recognises the differences amongst learners with ADHD and can be used by educators and disability practitioners to support individual students.
