Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas
The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) recently reported (May 2015) that many more children with #ADHD should be receiving additional behavior therapy not just medicines. They specifically cited that their group feels that pre-school children especially need additional behavior therapy and not medicine. Just a few years ago, only 44% of ADHD children were receiving any type of behavior therapy.
Based upon my experience as a public school teacher, that is not enough by a long shot. I’ve also come to believe that there needs to be family counseling about behavior management of their children and the parents! The rapidly increasing importance of standardized tests has decreased the time these students get to move around during each school day. Their behavior becomes more negative as the day goes on. That is “so wrong!”
