Teaching Students to Monitor Their Own Behavior
Teaching students with ADHD to monitor their own behavior through self-talk may help them solve problems, focus, calm themselves, and reinforce their own good behavior.
You may be able to model this technique by teaching students to say these types of thoughts:
- Problem solving: "What step should I take next?"
- Focusing: "I need to take my time and read through these directions one by one."
- Dealing with difficulties: "I can do this if I keep at it."
- Rewarding themselves: "I worked hard on that essay and finished it on time!"
