Students who have both Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and reading difficulties or disabilities (including dyslexia) are uniquely at risk for a variety of negative educational and life consequences. Dr. Denton led a large scientific study of interventions for children who have both ADHD and reading difficulties. In this presentation, Dr. Denton will describe our current scientific understanding of ADHD, as well as the unique characteristics of students who have both ADHD and reading disabilities. She will discuss intervention for these students and describe components of the intensive reading intervention provided in her study. She will conclude with practical advice to educators on adapting instruction to support the reading success of students with ADHD and reading difficulties. This presentation is based in part on Dr. Denton’s chapter on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in the edited book by Nancy Young & Jan Hasbrouck (2024), Climbing the Ladder of Reading & Writing: Meeting the Needs of All Learners, PD Essentials/Benchmark Education.
