Read ADD/ADHD Alternatives in the Classroom and Implications of Changes for the Field: ADHD. In your post, discuss your thoughts on working with children/adolescents in the classroom setting. Should teachers be trained to work with these students in a different manner compared to children/adolescents without ADHD?
Thoroughly argue and defend your position by evaluating and applying appropriated developmental theory and concepts with support from module readings and other articles as you deem necessary. Keep in mind DSM 5’s criteria for ADHD and determine whether providing DSM 5 training to educators would better enable them to support students with ADHD.
In response to your peers, support or counter their positions with support from the module’s readings or other research you have found. In your support or differentiated opinion of a colleague’s position, provide a real-world example that supports your views on whether training for educators should be mandated.
For example, should educators be mandated to attend trainings on a quarterly basis or yearly basis, and what content should be presented to educators to ensure they are interacting effectively with students with ADHD?
