Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects the brain, creating challenges for students. It’s vital that ADHD school programs offer learning support and positive recognition. That’s because students with ADHD experience issues with attention, impulse control, problem-solving and planning. Some students may need access to school accommodations for ADHD, which allow them to stay focused on learning as they build their confidence. In high school, students should take an active role in planning for their own academic success, and educators can work to encourage students’ interests and give them flexible options for completing assignments.
