What can I do to support and improve executive function?

 

 

 

A:

Teachers should try to reduce the amount of information students with ADHD have to retain and juggle in their heads:

  • Emphasize direct instruction in specific learning skills
  • Chunk, pause, and repeat critical instructions
  • Use advance organizers, structured note-taking sheets, manipulatives, and visual representations
  • Use teaching/learning strategies such as mnemonics
  • Introduce class-wide peer tutoring

This is a simple list of strategies to get you started.
