    student. Each student is a different world and need different approaches in the classroom. “As students with ADHD are a very diverse group, there is no one intervention or set of interventions that will improve the classroom functioning of all of these students. It is suggested that classroom modifications be tailored to unique needs” (Brock, S., et al. 2010. P.4). Regarding my own needs of growth to include and successfully teach a student with ADHD, I can say that I would like to work on modifying the classroom to help my student avoid distractions and make it easier for him to learn.

It’s also important to start meeting frequently with colleagues to have conversations about ways to improve. Sometimes it’s helpful to listen to other professional points of views to enrich your own and find new ways to help your students. It´s hard to do this regarding the amount of work a teacher has. We have to find the times to come together as a team and evaluate our practices. We can always improve and find new effective ways to work with students with ADHD.

All students are unique and different. They benefit from different approaches and…

    Well okay it might have been a little helpful but still very different. With my own kids I never want to see them struggle. So I feel like I am constantly trying to intervene on their lives. I never want them to be upset or hurt because then it feels like I am not being a good mother, which can be very hard at times. Although being the oldest has helped. I got to see more of how my mother raised her children than say my younger siblings did. This helps a lot because if I ever feel like I am…

    from birth, throughout a persons’ life, into and during old age. This theory was found to be most fitting for what aging means to me by focusing primarily on life experiences through early childhood to adulthood, as these are the most effective years that help shape that we become as individuals and establish who we are in the world. We gain certain behaviors through those who support us in life, and over the lifespan of life you find the people who care most about you. As we look into the…
