How To Teach ADHD Students
Links to 60+ Articles, Ebooks and PowerPoints on Teaching Students with ADHD
8-10% of students in K-12 have ADHD. We’re the biggest number of Special Needs students although we’re often neglected. These articles and ebooks will:
- help ADHD students learn more and with less struggle
- reduce the ADHD student’s stress and ODD
- improve the whole classroom environment
- reduce the teacher’s stress

Some students with ADHD have many problems in school and struggle greatly, some do very well. I have ADHD and I made the dean’s honours list in University and had one of my essays published. But it would have been a much easier road for me if I was diagnosed, treated and taught using some of these methods.
Many Adders with a high IQ go undiagnosed. There’s a Mensa Special Interest Group on ADHD that has 600+ members, and there are many adults with ADHD who have Ph.D.’s and teach in a place like Harvard and Yale.
