Educational Support

Educational support is crucial for students with ADHD to help them succeed academically and socially.

In Australia, schools and educational institutions are required to provide reasonable adjustments and accommodations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005.

These adjustments may include Individualised Education Plans (IEPs), which outline specific goals, services, accommodations, and supports tailored to the student’s unique needs.

Classroom accommodations, such as preferential seating, additional time for assignments, and visual aids, can significantly improve a student’s ability to focus and learn.

Additionally, interventions like social skills training, time management, and organisational strategies can enhance overall functioning and foster a more inclusive and supportive learning environment for students with ADHD.
