Aussie Teacher's Resources
Include ADHD is a great website set up with quality information is by an Australian teacher. It includes many helpful resources like a PDF with examples of classroom adjustments for different ADHD challenges that students may come across at school.
There are also other great resources under more specific topics such as Legislation, Emotional Regulation, Executive Function, Medication, and Inclusive Classroom Practice.
Some educator's knowledge about ADHD will already exceed what is shared on this website, however, if a handful of teachers are able to gain something small that assists them to help a child with ADHD to feel supported, it is worthwhile.
Perhaps a parent of a child with ADHD might read something that helps them to start a conversation with their child’s teacher.
