Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling Children with ADHD generally have trouble in school, only because school causes many trials for children with ADHD. ADHD is not a learning disorder; however it can cause children to have problems with learning. Furthermore, children with ADHD have an excessive rate of learning disorders and will have problems with other school-work like calculation and following a long with his/her teacher during direct instructional time. But with enduring and an efficient plan, the child will be capable of succeeding in the classroom. ADHD negatively can affect a child’s social and emotional behavior and the ability to control them in a positive manner in a school environment. Children that have both ADD/ADHD are expressively immature. Some studies show that children with ADHD, especially those children that have expressive outbursts or have violent tendencies, they have a hard time getting along with others. In school, if their classmates and teacher single them out, they feel self-conscious. Many children with disabilities usually need more structured and clearly amorphous surroundings, also behaviorally, than a general education classroom can offer. ADHD’s basic signs for children with an ADHD are lack of concentration, hyperactivity, and impulsivity causes child children to cope with day to day school challenges (Zentall, 1993). Children with ADHD have trouble sustaining attention to stay on task; this causes them to miss important details on their assignments, distraction during class activities and difficulty organizing assignments. According to doctor (Russell Barkley), he said that “children with ADD/ADHD have the tendency to fall behind about 30 percent, when it comes to their developmental performance.” In fact, the NIH determined that children with ADHD, “their mind fully grows three times slower than children without ADHD”. As a result, parents and teachers can offer additional comments, and oversee their school assignments more carefully, as well as provide them with a reminder about their homework and relate more often with them and to assist children on how to deal with their disability. Delve into a way that medication will help most children with ADD/ADHD increase their accomplishments, whether it is at home or school. Medication is usually used to treat children with ADHD. Medication such as “Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, and Ritalin,” just to name a few medications that may help children stay focus. Parents and teachers should also find out what side effects the medication may have on a child. The National Resource Center on ADHD has put together some plans that will help children with ADHD. The first plan is “Section 504 (Rehabilitation Act of 1973), and the second plan is IDEA (Individual with Disabilities Education Act)”. Both the 504 and IDEA by law grants special education modification for qualified children with ADD/ADHD within the United States. Different states might be inflicted with the same equivalent laws to help children with ADD/ADHD. Before, a child can be considered for the 504 Plan they need to be evaluated, prior to getting the plan. An assessment is not a formal testing; it reflects on a combination of things such as “Parents notes, doctor’s notes, test scores, and observations, etc.” The IDEA is also a federal law that approves of special education and related services requires a child with ADHD to be qualified for benefits to help them with their education. For a child, to qualify for IDEA they have to first be referred as a special educational child. In closing, a child with ADHD, school can be a challenging experience. Therefore, a child with ADHD often receives referrals for classroom disruptions or poor academic performance. ADHD in a child’s schooling causes difficulty sustaining attention to important assignments, it will also cause them to daydream during activities, and organizing assignments. A student with ADHD would encounter more problems with their school performance than a student who does not have ADHD. Some schools have designed a plan that helps children thrive in a classroom, by providing strategies to help them with learning inside and outside the classroom. Teachers must recommend new methods; different plans that can help meet the needs of children with ADHD. In our earlier years we were taught what some people may call incident learning. Incident learning is a nondirect way of learning, which means that they acquire knowledge by absorbing from the course of ordinary life. Teachers who appreciate incident learning discover ways to bring the children attention back to her. For example, the teacher is reading a book about a big brown bear name Harry and a fire truck may pass by while he/she is reading to the children and the whole class runs to the window to see the fire truck, instead of saying take your seat ask them what sound does a fire truck make? Or how many firemen did you see on the truck? That is what incidental learning is all about, just getting all the children not just the ones with ADHD to listen and response to what their teacher is saying. In conclusion, a child with ADHD may have trouble learning. Therefore, it takes time for them to understand just how this disability can affect their life. Even a child with ADHD can be successful inside and outside of school. I feel with the help of their parents and teachers a child with ADHD can be succeed in whatever they want to do in life.
