Hong Kong school classes will be held online at the start of this academic year. But we all know that getting children to sit still long enough to attend their classes in front of a screen can be a challenge, let alone those with attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Children with ADHD find it especially difficult to concentrate on tasks and pay attention. They are more distractible, impulsive, or hyperactive than they should be for their age.
Dr Kean Poon, Associate Head of the Department of Special Education & Counselling, shares with parents five tips for helping their children to stay focused in an online learning environment.
FEHD also provide a resource pack for parents to put the tips into practice. To download the pack, please click here.
