Ask The Expert Educator Highlight: Teaching Grit, Perseverance and Frustration Tolerance
To Students with ADHD
Featuring Cindy Goldrich EdM, ACAC
Your students learn through direct instruction and opportunities to practice the information, as well as time and repeated efforts. However, the ability of students to succeed academically does not solely rely on curriculum. The ability to regulate emotional and cognitive impulses plays an important role in a student’s ability to succeed academically.
In this Ask the Expert Educator Highlight, you can learn strategies to build on students’ strengths, praise with impact, and teach self-motivation. Teaching these and other social emotional learning tools will allow you to help students develop their ability to sustain their focus, manage their frustration, and persevere to achieve their goals.
