Useful Information on Attention and Executive Function
This site uses common language to define the common symptoms of students who present with or have been diagnosed with symptoms of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It also provides information on what executive functioning is and how a lack of these skills may affect a student's performance. Each section provides simple examples and some even include a video. As best practice, you should consult with a physician if you wish to have your child evaluated for ADHD. A physician is best trained in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD.
