Each chapter focuses on a different key issue affecting children with ADHD around the time of school transition, such as organization, friendships and stress. If left unaddressed, these difficulties can contribute to low self-esteem, behavioural problems and poor academic achievement. Using tried-and-tested strategies and top tips, this fully-photocopiable workbook will help adults to work collaboratively with young people to learn, test strategies, set goals and develop comprehensive support plans around individual needs.
Suitable for use with individual children or group work, Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School will guide teachers, therapists and support staff in helping young people with ADHD to overcome the challenges of early adolescence in order to improve school performance and personal relationships.
