Diagnosis of adhd, the cause and consequence. A study about the teachers thought about it.

The purpose of this study was to examine teachers experience and views about children diagnosed with adhd, and what implication and effects it gives to the pedagogy strategies in the classroom.

This is a qualitative study based on the experience of six teachers from primary school. My results have been compiled and compared to special educational research about adhd, from three different perspectives.

The results showed that the teachers who have been working as teachers for a longer period, think that the problems of adhd occur primarily due to environmental causes, but then also say that they think the individual causes matters. It is also these teachers that talks very well about medication as a treatment to cure adhd symptoms. The teachers who have worked the shortest time, most of them have some special education from the teacher education. They think that the adhd occur primarily from individual cause as heredity, and secondarily that surrounding environment also matters. Still the pedagogic strategies do not differ between these two groups of teachers with different thoughts about the causes of adhd symptoms.

All the teachers want more knowledge about adhd, while simultaneously at the same time they think that the school situation works very well.
