How students are supported through organization of classroom space and assignments.
How students are supported in the delivery of instruction.

A description of the brain regions, neurotransmitters, and physiological symptoms associated with ADHD.
A discussion of how children with ADHD are encouraged to participate in lessons.
A sample of how children are assisted with self-monitoring (e.g. a behavior checklist).
