We understand that every student is unique, and that some students may require additional support to succeed in the classroom. That's why we're committed to creating a learning environment that is inclusive and supportive of all students, including those with ADHD.
ADHD can affect a student's ability to focus, organise, and complete tasks. We recognise that students with ADHD may require a different learning approach than their peers, and we work hard to ensure that our classrooms are adapted to meet their needs.
One of the key ways we adapt our classroom environments for students with ADHD is by creating a structured and predictable routine. We ensure that our lessons follow a consistent pattern and that our students know what to expect throughout the day. This can help students with ADHD to feel more organised and in control, which can lead to better academic performance. Having small class sizes (around 4 students per class) creates a clearer, calmer environment that can be helpful to young people with ADHD.
We also recognise that students with ADHD may require additional support to stay focused and engaged during lessons. To address this, we provide a range of accommodations, such as preferential seating, extra time on assignments, and frequent breaks. These accommodations can help students with ADHD to stay on task and avoid becoming overwhelmed or distracted.
In addition to these classroom adaptations, we also work closely with parents and other professionals to ensure that our students receive the support they need both inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that a collaborative approach is essential for meeting the unique needs of each student with ADHD.
LAMP is committed to providing a learning environment that is inclusive, supportive, and adaptable. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to succeed, and we're proud to offer a range of accommodations and supports to help students with ADHD reach their full potential.
ADHD UK was founded in 2020 with a mission to help those affected by ADHD – either those that have the condition or people close to them: family, friends, employers, and co-workers. We aim to help people navigate their life with ADHD, we want to reduce the stigma that some attach to those with ADHD, build awareness, and undertake or fund research that will have a meaningful positive impact on those with ADHD.
