This is a collection of practical suggestions and materials to use with pupils who have ADHD or demonstrate ADHD type behaviour. This book provides a variety of materials to help the child get to know their own personality and mind and in doing so, become more able to control their own feelings, thoughts and actions. Where the first edition focuses on work to do with the individual child, this second edition will be enhanced by a brand new chapter on the theory, medication and alternative therapies for ADHD, useful for anyone wanting to know more about the condition; and by another on what the teacher can do, including case studies, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) writing guide and reflective questions for the teacher about the child and teaching strategies. These chapters will complement the existing content perfectly.
