About This Course

Do you have students with ADHD in your classroom? Do you feel challenged to find the balance between the needs of your class and helping the student with ADHD learn effectively? You are not alone. Whether you are new to the field or well versed in ADHD, this course will validate the vital role educators’ play in the lives of their students and will explore proven methods for teaching children with the most challenging problems. Strategies provided in this course benefit ALL students.

CHADD (the National Resource on ADHD) has developed this program to give practical strategies and resources to educators working with students that have ADHD, provide ongoing support around ADHD topics, and help districts redefine culture and local policies. This self-paced course was modeled after CHADD's Teacher to Teacher: ADHD Goes to School Program.

Throughout the program, educators will learn ways to help students improve academic success; teach planning, organization and time management skills; find out about strategies to reduce typical behavior problems and enhance self-management skills in the classroom; understand ADHD education laws, reforms, policies, and their implications; and explore innovative educational practices and model programs to build effective schools. Educators will also have access to CHADD's ADHD Online Community, customized to promote collaboration, information sharing, and ongoing guidance around supporting students with ADHD.
