Book Details


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 the reader how effective management strategies can improve behaviour in the classroom, and at home. This interdisciplinary approach will provide teachers with: - tried and tested 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.
