Keeping the Attention of the Class

Description

What helps children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can also be useful for children with lesser behaviour difficulties, say researchers.

Professor Peter Tymms and Dr Christine Merrell from the University of Durham have written a booklet to provide information for teachers. In the schools which used the booklet, teachers reported marked improvement in the children.

Some of the key recommendations include positioning the child closer to the teacher, removing unnecessary distractions, giving verbal instructions that are clear and concise, arranging short deadlines and explaining the timetable at the beginning of the day.
