Course Purpose

All students are impacted by remote learning. While many populations are adversely affected, students with ADHD must adjust to a remote environment and also deal with a whole new source of distractions and a sudden loss of structure. In this lesson we will explore four strategies for engaging students with ADHD, and discuss how to use them in a remote environment. Our goal is to ensure that students who already face an uphill battle in traditional learning environments have an equal chance to succeed in learning both in the classroom and at home.
