ADHD is characterized by an inability to pay attention, hyperactivity or both. It is said that being diagnosed with ADHD has had numerous negative affects of students and their education. With many experiments it was found that children diagnosed with ADHD have a higher probability of grade repetition and being enrolled in special education. With that being said there are many ways school systems should change to help those suffering from ADHD.
One of the first ways a school can change is to not base a students educational level based on a standardized test. Students with ADHD may have trouble sitting and paying attention to a packet or computer screen for long periods of times. This can impact the grade they get on these test and potentially hold them back a grade. By not having standardized testing be a factor of a students educational level, it would be a good start into changing they ways of the school system.
