ADHD can be frustrating for both teachers and students, but coming together to find strategies that work helps your student— and your relationship— blossom.

As one of the most common childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, the characteristics of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often get misinterpreted as intentional misbehavior or daydreaming in the classroom. But when teachers engage their student with ADHD in exploring what works for them, it can lead to stronger connections and more academic success.
