Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to provide intervention strategies for students with ADHD, seeking a work that involves parents, with orientation; the educators, offering intervention strategies in the classroom, orientations as to behavior, and adaptations in their own environment school, and other professionals involved in the rehabilitation of this disorder, offering the choice of behavior and learning strategies appropriate for different situations. The activities aimed to develop aspects of speech (for language development, vocabulary expansion and textual integration), phonological processing skills (favoring the development of mechanisms for reading and writing), motor coordination (looking for improvement in the textual structure and formation of the letters), reading comprehension (for the extraction of information about the material read), and in general, some specific difficulties observed in the academic context (such a sustained attention and concentration, minimizing stimuli that can increase hyperactivity). The intervention strategies proposed prioritize the needs of students with ADHD, and focus of intervention is to increase the frequency and duration of appropriate behaviors, in different situations.
