ADHD Worksheet for Teachers
What is the theory behind this ADHD Worksheet for Teachers?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder diagnosed in early to late childhood that is characterised by impulsive behaviours, hyperactivity and difficulty in focusing. It affects all aspects of a child’s life including their academic outcomes. A good treatment program incorporates behaviour management not just at home but at the school as well.
How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet will provide a template that teachers can use to encourage desirable behaviour in the classroom. It will help provide clear, achievable goals and motivation for the child to improve their behaviour. A collaborative effort of parents and teachers can maintain consistency in behavioural training at home and school.
How to use the worksheet?
Teachers can discuss the worksheet with the child’s parents to identify few social and academic problematic behaviours that need to be replaced with desirable behaviours. The behavioural targets should be specific and easily achievable. A star can be given to indicate the child achieved the behavioural goal for that day. Rewards can be decided for each day and a grand reward for collecting all the stars by the end of the week.
