Build on student strengths and support the learning and wellbeing of students with ADHD across all aspects of the curriculum.
Common forms of ADHD
ADHD can look different from one student to another. Learn about some of the common forms of ADHD below.
They may show creativity, such as coming up with imaginative ideas or thinking 'outside the box'. This may be shown non-verbally, using movement or drawing.
Some have strong feelings of self-competence. They may become quite good at overcoming obstacles.
Some students with ADHD may be good at doing what their teacher or SLSO asks. A student may be able to answer back eagerly or help out with tasks quickly.
Some students with ADHD may be excited to learn new things and might be more involved in their learning. They may be more willing to raise their hand and ask relevant questions.
