Game-Based Learning and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one of the most commonly diagnosed learning disorders among children. Students with ADHD struggle to pay attention and control their impulses in class. This behavior often provokes frustration in teachers and leads to serious academic problems. Students with ADHD are significantly more likely than their peers to be placed in lower-level classes and drop out of high school. Current research shows that students with ADHD respond well to game-based learning activities. Further research must be conducted to determine which games yield the best academic results. In response to this information, I created a website with instructions for several learning games that teachers can use in their classrooms to motivate their students with ADHD.
