Abstract

Few targeted resources exist for teaching speech and language to children with ADHD, despite the high prevalence of such deficits within this population. While these children can be challenging to teach given their deficits in selective and sustained attention, as well as their impulsivity and hyper-activity, success in learning improves when difficulties in processing physical, visual, and aural stimuli are addressed. This article will provide methods, strategies, and sample materials to support educational assistants, teachers, parents, and speech language pathologists in generating effective and motivating activities to optimize learning in children with ADHD.
