Achieving gold with autistic children
The demands of the school from children are pretty much basic; they have to: sit still, listen carefully, pay attention, follow instructions, and concentrate. However, these are the very things that a child with ADHD has a problem dealing with, and this isn’t because of their unwillingness, but their condition does not allow them to.
The problems the ADHD students face, lead them towards lower grades, punishment, scolding and teasing, which leads them towards developing a low self-esteem.
It is important that a teacher understands that the child with ADHD is curious, creative, energetic, and entertaining. So keep always in mind that they do not try to be disruptive and are unaware of their disturbing behavior. For these students, the teachers who are flexible, consistent, provide a variety of activities to do and follow a clear routine, are the best ones.
Therefore, as a teacher, to teach a child who would settle down and listen: patience, creativity, and consistency are highly required.
