Are you struggling with students who have ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?

There is likely to be at least one student in any mainstream class with ADHD, an evolving concept that affects pupils' learning, concentration, behaviour and social relationships. In order to offer effective support and maximize the learning potential of all students in your classroom you will need to understand the different needs of all children, but perhaps especially those with ADHD.

With sections covering the background to ADHD, the school setting and the wider context of home life, this complete resource ensures excellent practice for working with students with ADHD. It provides:

- examples of successful tried-and-tested strategies

- activities to use with children

- checklists

- information on referral pathways

- advice on working with parents

- case studies to facilitate discussion

A substantial bank of electronic resource materials is available from the SAGE website to use with the book, including PowerPoint presentations and a range of photocopiable sheets. Packed with the most up-to-date information and rooted in real-life examples from the author's own experiences and research, this is the complete resource you need to help you work successfully with students who have ADHD.

Every class teacher, SENCO and teaching assistant in a primary or secondary school will find this an invaluable and supportive guide.

Linda Wheeler is an independent education consultant and researcher, having been for many years a teacher in both mainstream and special schools. She is currently a part-time Lecturer at the University of Worcester.

Industry Reviews

'The ADHD Toolkit offers an extremely well researched guide to understanding and supporting students with ADHD in schools. This book will help the reader to understand the difference between the child who is disaffected, defiant and oppositional, and the child whose core difficulties reside in chronic problems of self-regulation and concentration (i.e. ADHD)' - Dr. Paul Cooper, Professor of Education, University of Leicester
