Kids with ADHD do struggle with academics! That’s why just reading to them can get them into the habit of being alter when trying to read. Trust me it’s been a journey already.
Individuals with ADHD often display comorbid word decoding deficits – difficulty identifying written words (McGrath et al., 2011; Shanahan et al., 2006; Willcutt et al., 2010). These decoding problems can hinder reading comprehension, making it difficult to determine whether comprehension problems are due to decoding difficulties, comprehension difficulties, or both.
We strive to help A as much as we can. With this long extended break his first grade teacher says if all else fails and schoolwork is too much then grab a book and read. Even if they’re not at that level or struggle to read always read to them.
I rounded up 13 first grade books that can help ADHD kids when it comes to reading.
