Is ADHD a Disorder?

Make PD your own with Professional Development Sundays at Raki's Rad Resources

Recently, I posted about how my school is using Facebook and Pinterest as part of our professional development.  (See the whole post HERE.) I’ve decided to pass on some of the best videos and articles I come across to you each Sunday evening.  Here is this week’s professional development post:

How do we best help our our ADHD students?  Professional Development Sunday at Raki's Rad Resources

I absolutely love this video because it is a gentleman with ADHD talking about ADHD from a very realistic point of view.  He explains the importance of catching a student with ADHD’s attention in a very clear way and talks about how ADHD cannot be gotten rid of, so we need to teach students to work within their “different cognition” rather than trying to rid them of their “disorder”.  This video is about 13 minutes long and completely worth the watch.  After you watch, I’d love to hear how you help students with ADHD in your classroom.
