'In many ways this publication reads like a toolkit, and as such offers a range of practices that may be considered in order to improve outcomes for all. A readable and supportive book' - SNIP
Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be hard to include in a mainstream classroom, and managing their behaviour is often a challenge.
Drawing directly from real classroom experience, this book shows how to use effective management strategies to improve behaviour in the classroom and at home.
This interdisciplinary approach will provide teachers with:
" strategies to deal with disruptive behaviours
" ways to channel children's positive characteristics
" advice on how teachers can support and guide parents
" behaviour management techniques to promote positive behaviour
" advice on collaborative working, and how teachers can build partnerships with other professionals.
An excellent guide to understanding a common difficulty experienced children and a challenge for their teachers. Useful for both management of the behaviours associated with ADHD and also a reference tool for those wishing to extend their study of the condition.
A very accessible book. Really helps in the understanding of ADHD
A great book for any students completing ALN units in a variety of courses.
This book will be brilliant for learners covering SEN units.
It is both factual and informative as well as making interesting reading.
Case studies were helpful for making links to own experiences.
I particularly liked the key points to remember section at the end of each chapter. I feel this really helps learners to summarise and revise the chapters.
A useful book for those who do not have any experience in this field and therefore recommended for our Undergraduate courses
Excellent case studies that can be used in class and good summaries at the end of each chapter. The students who are evaluating this subject as part of their module said they would buy the book.
