The steps are simple enough that students can follow them on their own; however, as i mention before, sometimes we take for granted what students might be able to do and failed to access a skill that students might need to work on. Before engaging in inquiry learning, it is imperative for students to have the skills mention on this image.

I thought this was a great resource to start a person’s understanding of what ADHD is and how we can help our students become successful within the classroom. I think it is great that the BC Ministry of Education has created resources such as this one to educate people who are unaware.

The link once again is for BC Ministry of Education.
