January Blog: ADHD Tools for the Classroom

ADHD Tools for the Classroom

This month's blog is ADHD Tools for the Classroom.

ADHD stands for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and it is one of the most common mental disorders both kids and adults are going through. Just imagine, every 10th child needs a special treatment whereas just half of them receive it. Going through ADHD is a challenge not only for the family but for the teacher as well. School is the place where children spend nearly half of their day learning and socializing; thus, applying the ADHD tool options at school is an integral part of the complex treatment.

As a preschool teachger, Guest Blogger Jennifer Broflowski found that dealing with ADHD is a necessary tool for all educators despite their students' age.
