Description

Classrooms are continually becoming more diverse complete with students who have various needs. With more research being done, the structure of education in the classroom are changing. The CDC report as of 2014 was that around 5%-11% of the population shows symptoms of Attention Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). With more recognition of ADHD and other disabilities like it there is a need for more training of teachers to better accommodate students and make modifications to their instructional decisions. The purpose of this literature review is to enhance the knowledge of strategies in the classroom and examine what works and what may be harder to implement. The implementation of different strategies in the classroom will not only help the students with the diverse behavioral needs but may help the other students in the class as well leading to a more inclusive classroom.
