Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

One of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders that occur in childhood, ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and may present itself in three different ways:

  • Predominantly Inattentive Presentation:
    • Students may experience a high level of distraction and forgetfulness
  • Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation:
    • Students may be restless and impulsive in decision-making
  • Combined Presentation:
    • Students may experience an equal combination of both presentations as described above

Educate Tutoring supports students who experience ADHD through targeted and specialised instruction. This includes multisensory activities which incorporate educational tasks involving the different senses and kinetic learning methods, as well as a rigorous scope and sequence that provides highly structured lessons with comforting, clear and familiar routines.

Students are taught to express responsibility for their educational journey, and this includes being encouraged to stay organised in their work, presentation, and assigned tasks. Our educators are also trained to communicate explicitly by setting and reinforcing boundaries, as well as praising and rewarding positive and effective learning behaviours.

We believe in providing every opportunity possible for our students to excel, and we actively enable this through specific instructions and feedback. These methods are highly beneficial for learners with ADHD as they are provided with pathways to intake and process information in the most direct and straightforward way possible, allowing for mental energy to be expended towards successful task completion; positive and healthy social connections with their peers and instructors!
