The problem is I understand everything before you’re finished and then things get boring. You tell my parents I can’t learn, but that is not true. When something grabs my attention, I learn easily. I’m not contesting your authority. I’m contesting your methods and strategies. Give me visual, give me hands on, give me time. Don’t just keep asking me for answers. Guide me to find them. I’m just not another student. I’m not different. I just learn differently than your traditional ways. Include me in your decision. When I can’t concentrate, please change the activity. Give me a game, music or even dance. But don’t yell at me . I know it can be frustrating, but have you ever thought of how I feel? Sincerely, An ADD student Slide7:  But who can help them? We can.

(2000). Attention deficit disorders and comorbidities in children, adolescents, and adults. 1st ed. Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Press, Inc.

Memories from the 'other': lessons in connecting with students. Phi Delta Kappan, 86, 782-786. ( The article gave me a inside look at the educational life of a ADD child from his on point of view - from elementary school all the way to college) Weiss, G. (1993). Hyperactive children grown up. 2nd ed. New York: The Guilford Press. ( The book is full of information and statistical records. However, its content is more of a clinical research and it does not reach the topic of my project) Attention Deficit Disorder Association, (n.d.). Retrieved Dec. , 2005, from www.add.org. (The site gives good information on ADD and great links to ADD related issues) Google Images, (n.d.). Retrieved Dec. , 2005, from www.google.com. (A great source of photos, pictures, drawings, cartoons and also links to sites related to your search) United States Department of Education, (n.d.). Teaching children with attention. Retrieved Dec. , 2005, from www.ed.gov. (The site gives teachers, and non-teachers, practical instruction on how to conduct a classroom for children with ADD) Interviews: Cynthia W. and Sam R. spoke honestly about their growing up with the ADD label attached to their school records, and how stereotypes and lack of information affects the lives of school children and their parents. I also want to thank Nicolas G., my nephew how was the inspiration for this project.
