I’m going to give you a scenario. Make a recommendation for testing one of the following disorders based on the signs and symptoms you decipher: Hearing, vision, and/or speech impairment, learning disorder, ADHD, or ODD.
Today alone, Ms. Shaffer has reminded Timothy of the classroom rules and expectations five different times. Each time she redirects Timothy, he apologies but continues the behavior several minutes to hours later. Timothy’s classmates complain that he does not wait his turn when playing in math centers and he often blurts out the answers when it isn’t his turn. When Ms. Shaffer brought these concerns up with Timothy’s father, he explained that he notices the same behaviors at home and it seems that Timothy even becomes distracted while watching his favorite T.V. shows.
