Inclusive education is becoming a reality in South Africa with the result that teachers who
are not trained to teach learners with special needs have to face a new challenge. They
are not only challenged by greater numbers in their classes but also with learners with
different barriers to learning, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The
educators are in need of knowledge about specific problems learners with ADHD
experience, and aid to the educators to cope with various problems in the classroom
becomes very important.
<br>Three types of behaviour are manifested by ADHD learners, namely inattention,
impulsivity and hyperactivity. This article provides educators with examples of possible
behaviour of learners with ADHD in the classroom to assist them in identifying these
learners. Identification is the first step in aiding the learner with ADHD as knowledge of
the learner with ADHD and the problems experienced by them may contribute to a more
positive attitude on the teachers' side.
