Accommodations for Kids with ADHD


Active and inattentive students can be difficult to support in the classroom. In my experience the number one intervention is developing a trusting student/ teacher relationship. The second most successful intervention is high quality instruction that is predictable and measured. Below are some links to help with the process.

ADHD medication monitoring in schools

The Taylor Medication Effectiveness Report

For students that have been identified as needing medication to support learning at school monitoring the effectiveness and side effects can be challenging. It is important that the school is equipped to give adequate feedback to physicians to make informed decisions for the medications they prescribe.

I am currently having good success with, The Taylor School Medication Effectiveness Report. It allows a report card like grading system for the positive outcomes of medication as well as the negative side effects that the student might be experiencing.
