Expert advice for bolstering language skills — reading, writing, and speaking — in children with ADHD and learning disabilities like dyslexia.
This technique also provides extra time for them to formulate a response.Arrange for a child who writes slowly to share a friend’s classroom notes, or provide her with a list of the lesson’s main points. A child with ADHD may be unable to listen and write at the same time.
Reduce time pressure by shortening written assignments and exams.If a test has six essay questions, for example, you might require the children with ADHD to answer only three. Provide extra time if all questions must be answered, as in standardized tests. Give ADD students a head start on long-term projects.
Don’t deduct points for poor handwriting or bad grammar —unless the assignment specifically measures these skills. If a child is working hard to remember and communicate, it’s best to let some things slide.Suggest an evaluation for a learning disability if a student’s handwriting is particularly bad.
A child with dysgraphia produces letters of irregular size and shape, leaves words or letters unfinished, and holds his pencil awkwardly. Refer him to your school’s special-education department or urge the child’s parents to consult an occupational therapist, neuropsychologist, or pediatric neurologist.
Let students with writing difficulties dictate their ideas into a cassette or digital recorder.Later, they can transcribe their ideas. For computer software that turns spoken words into type, see “High-Tech Writing Helpers,” below.Show students how to organize their thoughts graphically
before they begin to write. In a “mind map,” a picture or word representing the main idea goes inside a circle in the center of the page. Related ideas are placed on lines radiating from the main idea. Read more: ADDitude »
