I've been through many an article giving tips on teaching students with ADHD. There are a lot of great tips out there. However, I find myself recently picking one tip apart, that being the suggestion of finding ways to bring them back to attention. It sounds well and good, and certainly is necessary and helpful, but while bringing back a flickering attention is a lot better than nothing, just how much are students learning if their attention is going on and off during instruction? How much is missed even during a few seconds of distraction?
