Accomodating Students With ADHD

A student who has ADHD should be able to thrive in a split class. The student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) outlines his specific needs in the classroom environment. If the teacher uses the right teaching strategies and follows your child's IEP, there should be no problem.

The school is responsible by law for creating an environment conducive to learning. Proper teaching strategies and interventions are developed to create the least restrictive, most accomodating classroom for students who have ADHD even in a split class.
