ADD/ADHD Tutoring

What exactly is ADD/ADHD?

What used to be referred to as ADD is now medically recognised as a biological neurological condition with 3 subtypes. The common and preferred medical term is ADHD. Subtypes include Inattentive, Hyperactive-Impulsive, or a combination of the two.

Symptoms of ADHD can vary widely from being quiet and detached, profoundly disorganised, or having a bounce-off-the-walls level of energy. They can also vary according to the child's natural personality and level of maturity. When it comes to being in a learning environment, these behaviours can create unique challenges.

Firstly, it's helpful to understand why it's so difficult for children with ADHD to do well in traditional school settings. Each of the 3 subtypes has its own unique challenges.

Learning challenges for children with Inattentive ADHD

It's hard to learn when you are unable to focus, have trouble listening, or are forgetful. These are the types of common challenges children with Inattentive ADHD face in a traditional classroom.

Learning challenges for children with Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD

This form of ADHD is the one most people associate with the condition. Restless, fidgety, interruptive, excessively talkative, and impatient. These symptoms also make learning in a traditional classroom environment challenging.

The Combined subtype includes symptoms of both Inattentive and Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD.

Most schools require students to sit still, keep quiet, listen, pay attention, concentrate, and follow instructions. For children with all subtypes of ADHD this can be extremely difficult or impossible. Although most teachers do a fantastic and often underappreciated job, they are usually limited with time and resources.
