Why ADHD in the classroom?

When I was looking into inquiry projects I struggled to think of a topic that would further my learning. I obviously thought of a million topics I could do, however I wanted something that connected to my immediate learning I was doing this year. When having a conversation with a classmate the topic of a boy with ADHD in my practicum class was brought up. That is when she suggested I inquire further into this topic.

I never thought ADHD within the classroom would be hard to manage, I quickly found out I was quite naive… This practicum has been a wake up call to the lack of resources available for students with ADHD and I plan to research to find resources, tactics, and tips to helping these students succeed to their full potential within a classroom.

Throughout the next few months I will be talking to my immediate practicum contacts L.S., E.B, and E.J. to see direct resources in the Nanaimo, Ladysmith school district in order to help my student as much as possible. I will also be researching tactics online and hopefully creating a plan with this student to help his learning.
