Summary

This problem-solving guide gives teachers and other professionals the information and materials they need to improve ADD/LD teens' academic and social skills and develop appropriate educational programs for them. A practical checklist format makes it easy to locate essential information, and hot topics such as self-management, motivation, homework completion, medication, and assistive technology are covered in detail. The book includes interesting student case histories throughout, over 100 reproducible graphic organizers, and specific recommendations for involving parents. A special appendix at the end of the book identifies 20 common classroom problems, from excessive movement, overactivity and hyperactivity to poor test-taking skills, and lists strategies to help students with ADHD or LD.
