How can different behavioural management techniques positively influence the learning experiences of children with ADHD?

ADHD affects everyone differently, but I have noticed that these students seem to struggle the most at finding a coping mechanism within lessons that will aid them to control their behaviour enough to enable both them to be able to concentrate to learn and also to not be a distraction to the rest of the class for them to be able to learn. This is why I have chosen the question ‘How can different behavioural management techniques positively influence the learning experiences of children with ADHD?’ for this action research project. I aim to try and find some workable solutions to this problem.

Managing Challenging Behaviour

For the organisation I work for, learners with challenging behaviour are more and more frequently being enrolled at the college, each learner is individually funded by the Local Education Authority with support ranging from £22,000 to £110,000 per year. Due to the funding allocated to individual learners, teachers have increasing pressures to meet targets such as learners completing their courses and passing. Subsequently, classroom behaviour management is a key element that needs to be successful to secure funding by meeting the targets set by the Local Education Authority in return for the enrolment of more learners with challenging behaviour thus more funding for the college. Therefore, identifying a workable and manageable behaviour strategy and policy that can be used consistently in the classroom and across the college is ever more important to get right in order to meet such targets.

As a teacher of these students, what matters most to me can be summed up in the simple question that forms the basis of my enquiry: What are the attitudes and motivation in Learning English?
