Capti Solutions for Education
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects roughly 10% of school age children (Source). It is characterized by inattention (i.e. daydreaming, lack of focus), hyperactivity (i.e. can’t sit still, excessive talking), and impulsivity (i.e. interrupting, inability to wait their turn). Students with ADHD struggle with executive function: working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control. Though ADHD is a lifelong condition, its symptoms can be managed with a good education plan.
Teachers may feel overwhelmed in a classroom of diverse learners and students with ADHD or ADD, present a unique challenge. A teacher’s success in the classroom, then, depends on their ability to engage with that student’s skills and provide them with the tools they need to focus.
Capti offers additional structure and support where other reading tools fall short. By organizing a student’s reading materials in playlists and distributing them straight to a student’s computer, iPad, and/or iPhone, teachers can relax knowing that their students will have a simple and consistent reading experience both in and outside of the classroom.
