Overview

This practical guide describes ways of working with learners diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by using Multiple Intelligences Theory. Written for all educators as well as parents, it examines curricular, instructional, school partnering, and leadership issues that may arise for these students in grades K-8. Supported by real-life examples, it presents constructive strategies to help teachers work with ADHD students in ways that honor their strengths and allow for meaningful inclusion in the general education classroom. As viewed through the lens of an MI curriculum, ADHD is not a disadvantage; it is an integral component of the way a student processes information and makes sense of the world. This thoroughly readable resource includes free online MIDAS assessments, one for a student with ADHD and one for a teacher

    A Great Resource!

    Whether you're a teacher looking for help teaching ADHD students, or have an ADHD child of your own, this is a great book. This book provides practical strategies to parents and teachers on how to help these special children to succeed in school and beyond. This book shows educators how to view the strengths of these children, allowing students to learn how they learn best. The authors in this book focus on the individual strengths of each student, rather than their weaknesses. I highly recommend this book.
