she would always forget about it and I always have to grab her from the sport ground. not until the school summoned a meeting for all the teachers teaching her. I will suggest some pedagogical ways to deal with her problems in my lessons. Even if she is in her seat. she has not performed up to her standard either. When she has to stay for detentions. in the academic aspect. so I moved her away from her classmates to a corner. She is emotional too. I think her greatest problem is her lack of . she managed to perform well enough to get into a band one EMI school. For example. Academically. She always does not hand in her homework. Her sister. Another incident that shows she is emotional is that she throws a very big tantrum when her classmates said something that angered her. When asked why she did not do her homework. My student is considered as a high-functioning ADHD patient because despite her disorder. I would like to discuss a case of ADHD in my class. She threw her pencil bag on the floor and kicked the chairs and desks around her. That's why many students do not like her and some are even scared of her. She is very forgetful and disorganized. She cried hysterically immediately. She can not sit still for more than five minutes. her handwriting is bad. In this essay. I would like to describe my observation of the student in my classroom. forgetfulness. she had been disturbing other students during the writing lesson. I did not realize that she may be a student with special needs. The educational psychologist and the social workers told us that she was discovered to have ADHD since primary 3 and she had been prescribed medicine. when she is describing an incident. social worker and other teachers. She always seizes the chance of teachers writing on the blackboards to move around the classroom.Form SEC-08110-03a (11/2013) “Shh…” “Go back to your seat!” “Stop disturbing your neighbors!” The above scene is familiar to most teachers in Hong Kong. There is hardly any organization in her writing. I considered her as the naughtiest student in my class. she would suddenly talk about another incident. She would also hide under the desk or hide behind other students in order to get the teacher's attention. she would keep rocking her chair or talking to her neighbors. because of the side effects of the medicine (loss of appetite and drowsiness). What is more. is suffering from ADHD too. First of all. Moreover. who studies in our school too. After discussing with the educational psychologist. we have concluded that the major problems the student is facing are her disorganization. Once. and suggest practical pedagogical ways and skills to help this particular student to integrate in the class. She cannot keep the words within the lines. To start with. impulsiveness and disruptive behaviours in class. In the following. she stopped taking the medicine when she came to our school (She was in Form 1 when I taught her). However. her writing is very messy. Maybe due to my lack of awareness. But this dialogue would appear a lot more frequently in a classroom with a student with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). she would say she did not know there was such homework. She is not welcomed by her classmates because of her misbehaviors.

She often copies any notes from the blackboard very slowly. I do not use any special apps. Second. I think students are generally more willing to take advice from their peers than from their teachers and parents. The ADHD student in my class is no exception. I think it helps to stimulate her brain and hence prolong her attention too. Although some may say that this kind of discussion can be done in traditional classroom. I have done two things. The graphic organizers help her to actually see the organization of an essay (such as topic sentences and elaboration). The aim of the Big Sister Scheme is to help Form 1 girls to adapt to the new secondary school life more easily and to help them form good studying habit. In the ‘forum’. That is why I think this Big Sister Scheme is perfect for my ADHD student. It is obvious that she has tried to use pens of different colours to highlight and jot down notes now. and she always misses some points when she copies. I just use the app the school provided (e-class) for the lessons. Therefore I think this Big Sister Scheme is of a great help to the ADHD student in . that student is weak at jotting down notes. it is the freshness and the multimedia that arouse students’ interests in the discussion. as our school promotes the use of Ipad in lessons and have sufficient number of Ipads for each student in the class. (2012) suggested that reading ability of an ADHD student have improved after only a sixweek course on reading with the help of Ipad. I have arranged the best behaved student in the class to sit next to her so that her neighbour can help her even though she cannot finish copy the things on the board. They may not necessarily be academically strong but they are all well behaved and well organized. Secondly. I have made use of the new technology to help this ADHD student.Form SEC-08110-03a (11/2013) organization skill both in her writing. The pictures help her to visualize her ideas. I have recommended her to join the Big sister scheme in our school. To help with her organization in her writing. I often use the function called ‘forum’ in that app. Moreover. They also showed them how they have used different graphs and tables to summarize the key points in their own words. The Big Sister Scheme in our school recruits around thirty Form 1 students who are recommended by teachers each year. I find using animated graphics and video help them generate their ideas too. students are allowed to raise their opinion and even upload pictures. Then every student in the class can see their opinion and give feedback immediately. McClanahan et al. Glomb et al (2010) suggested that mentoring programmes can enhance students’ academic performance. First. One workshop which I think is particularly helpful is that two senior forms girls demonstrated to the Form 1 girls how to jot notes by showing them their own notebooks. videos and audios to the ‘forum’ immediately. I have used graphic organizers and pictures. They taught the Form 1 girls how to use different colour pens and highlighters to highlight different key points. I find the interactive interface has helped to hold her attention better and longer. There are a few workshops in the Big Sister Scheme which focus on studying skills. To help her to form a good and neat habit for jotting down notes. While I cannot draw a conclusion that my student’s reading ability has improved because of the use of Ipad in lessons. Although in their research. students are matched with university students with similar learning difficulties. Two students will be taken care of by one senior form student who has been chosen through a series of interviews.

after completing the tasks. I tried to use the following ways to help her burn away her energy in class. I would ask her to clean the blackboard. All these . She is given 25% more time to finish the paper. for example. I will ask her to input her homework into this application now. she would even volunteer to do the tasks herself. I do not always do this because if I do this every time. For example. She always claims that she does not know there was such homework. she throws her stationery on the floor and rocks her desk. Later on. she would often pay more attention in class and have less disruptive behaviours. the impulsivity of that ADHD student in my class poses problems in her relationships with other classmates. in the school level. In that case. The third problem that affects her studies most is her absent-mindedness. After realizing that these happen due to the fact that she is hyperactive. She is also given some short breaks during the exam. the girl is seated in a single room with only one teacher invigilating her only. stand instead of sit when she gets restless…basically any means that can burn her energy. As she never forgets to bring her phone to school (Yes our school allows students to bring the phone to school). When she is angry. take books from the book shelf. which can remind her of what she has to do from time to time. Sometimes before I left the classroom. I would call her home and inform her parents what homework she has to do at the end of school on that day. and demand her to copy that on her schedule immediately. she gets angry easily. Of course. Also. I usually ask those students who always do not hand in homework to do this job. She would come out of her seat often too even when the teacher is present. During lessons. the school has special arrangements for her in the exams. later I realized that it was because of her problem of attention deficit. However. at the end of each lesson before I say “Good bye class”. or she sees something strange outside the windows. distribute worksheets. However. she would often speak without raising her hand. During the exam. the student would be dependent on me and can never learn how to take care of her own business. Forgetting to do her homework is a routine for her. This proves to be quite effective as she hands in homework more often since then. These methods actually prove to be quite successful. Besides what I have done in the classroom level. so I recommend her to install an application called “The Reminder”. This sitting arrangement helps too because then I can always remind her to stay focus whenever she starts to go off track. In terms of the social and behavioral aspects. As mentioned earlier. she would claim to pick something up from the floor. I would ask one student to repeat what homework there is on that day to the whole class. I will go to her seat privately and ask her to repeat to me what homework there is again. I have also asked her to sit right in front of me so that I can see what she is doing from time to time. I realize that she uses the same model of smart phone as I do. To remedy the situation.Form SEC-08110-03a (11/2013) my class. Sometimes. She is very willing to do the above tasks. I would not just ask that ADHD student to do so in order not to give her a feeling that I am singling her out and discriminating her. take chalks from the office. While at first I thought that she was making up excuses for her laziness. She has all kinds of excuses to come out of her seat. Moreover. it is normal for her not to bring her schedule book too. for an absent-minded student.

Form SEC-08110-03a (11/2013) have helped her to concentrate better and finish the paper with a standard comparable to other students. after all.31-35#. 56 (3).50. Unfortunately. She thought what the classroom arrangements during lessons and the fact that she has given medicine for her daughter to take again have helped her daughter’s performance and behaviours. Just imagine. She told me she was glad that there had been fewer complaints from the school about her daughter. 31-35 http://www. Therefore she only gives her medicine to eat during school days. The training of teachers is also very important too. 50(4). I think this kind of prejudice can be elevated if more training or workshops are held for current teachers. is the most effective way to improve the student’s performance. However. Even though they are teachers. She can sit quietly without moving around throughout the lesson. I would say that medication. TechTrend. the effect will not be that obvious. some teachers actually have a misunderstanding on the special arrangements in the exams. our school does not have an SEN teacher assistant.3200/PSFL. they would say that the parents and students take advantage of the special arrangements. It is as if she has turned to be a different person. Yet.springer. She was really concerned about her daughter’s performance and behaviour in school. and she even raised her hand when she tried to answer a question.1007/s11528-012-0572-6#page-1 . I think it is important that the school and the family work together to help the student. That is why there is such a huge leap in performance in the second term.UtVbFdIwdTw McClanahan et al. Moreover. or else it may be of even greater help to her. Despite the fact that she is not on medication every day. K. (2012) A Breakthrough for Josh: How Use of an iPad Facilitated Reading Improvement. Preventing School Failure.com/article/10.tandfonline. she is actually still quite reluctant to give medicine to her daughter as her daughter would become much less energetic and less responsive after medication. et al (2006) Alternative Education for Children and Youth. if the school teachers have done a lot to help the student but the parents are unwilling to give medicines to their children even when it is necessary. As this can raise the teacher’s awareness towards students with special needs and hence discover the students with needs earlier. I think this is a very sad phenomenon. 20-28 http://link. her mum came to see me on Parents’ Day. I did see a tremendous improvement in class right after she has taken medicine.com/doi/abs/10. Teachers are supposed to support students with special needs but not criticizing or judging them. Her mum has also hired a private tutor to help her daughter with her homework and studies.4. At the end of the academic year. Reference Glomb.
