12 Things High School Students with ADHD Want Teachers to Know


I forget things, even important things

I am not stupid

Please be patient if I ask the same question many times or ask too many questions

I really do want to do well

I do complete my homework

ADHD is not an excuse, I should not use it as one, and neither should you

I need help to succeed

If you notice me acting in inappropriate ways, please talk with me in private

I don't like having "special accommodations" in the classroom

Detailed explanations of your expectations will help me

Learning about ADHD is one of the best ways to help me

Although I have ADHD, I am not ADHD
