eaching children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in remedial classes

Abstract

This article is based on data collected in the interdisciplinary project ‘basic skills, social interaction and training of the working memory’. The trend in today’s schools is to work for inclusion of all children based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The focus of this study is teachers’ and parents’ views on the education of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and similar symptoms. The aim is to increase teachers’ and parents’ knowledge of the school context for this group of children. A questionnaire was developed and distributed to all teachers and parents involved in the project and data were compiled and reported in running text. Twenty-one teachers and school staff, and 41 parents (one dropped out) were involved. The results showed that problems in the classroom sometimes exceeded the genuine tasks of the school, and too much time was spent on reproving pupils’ unacceptable behaviours.
