This paper examines various suggested education methods for a child with ADD (ADHD). It looks at inclusion vs. seclusion and the roles the parents play in helping establish and decide which system works best for their child.

From the Paper:

"Today, approximately 5 percent of all public school students are identified as having a learning disability. This broad category includes disabilities in reading, language, and mathematics. One in every 10 students in public schools today receives special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Historically, educating students with disabilities has been synonymous with special education. The very fact of their disability made this type of child a burden to the general teacher and subjected them to potential failure with their schoolwork and ridicule from their classmates. Special education programs were essentially created to protect and nurture these children with disabilities. The main strategy was to organize programs that were segregated by the particular condition and isolated from the mainstream of children in the school setting (Zigmond, 1997)."
