101 School Success Tools for Students with ADHD provides materials and the guidance necessary to assist teachers and parents as they empower students with ADHD to become successful learners. Based on field-tested strategies for use with learners with ADHD, the book provides a brief overview of the specific learning needs of these students before including a wide variety of tools teachers can immediately pull out and use in the classroom and parents can use in the home setting.
Each tool is explained in a brief how-to section that includes specific information on adapting the tool based on the individual student's needs. The book covers topics like observing and collecting data on students, creating schedules, assessing a child's strengths, refocusing a child's attention, managing difficult behaviors, implementing calming techniques, providing motivation, and improving study and homework skills. A collection of worksheets, forms, checklists, charts, Web site listings, and other tools are included as reproducible pages.
