Reading now: 563

Most educators have received no formal training for teaching students with ADHD and its comorbid conditions.Though 100% of the teachers, tutors, counselors, and administrators surveyed recently by ADDitude said they serve at least one student with ADHD and/or autism, only 40% said they have undergone specialized training in these conditions.

The same goes for auditory processing issues, dyslexia, and/or dysgraphia, which 70% of educators said impact their students.Nine out of ten educators said they taught themselves about ADHD, using books, magazines (many named this one!), and websites for research.

More than four in five said they learned about neurodivergent learners from co-workers, parents of students, and the students themselves.
