ADHD stands for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Rather than thinking of these children as having a "disorder" or "disability," we approach them as having poor strategy.Children with ADHD have a chemical balance in their brains that is different from the chemical balance in the brains of their peers. Being sensitive to their needs, our teachers will be providing relevant academic structure and reinforcements that will be understood by these children and which is required for the important executive functioning skills that impact children with ADHD. We use these interventions to change the brain chemistry and help our children fill their toolbox with effective strategies.
