I have sat in many lessons, supporting challenging children and along with them have found myself completely at a loss as to what the task is. Am I ADHD too?
Often, I found myself working with predominantly boys in my groups and invariably I had to ask the girls tables for help - it would have seemed to be demeaning to ask the teacher and I would have been accused of undermining the lesson and the teacher.
Listening to instructions can be really difficult to follow sometimes, so it was really good to have a chance to listen in on some teacher instructions and try to undertake the task on offer.
Just for the record, I only managed to get 2 squares right. I found the task really challenging and frustrating to do.
Have a go at this and see if you did any better than me - please post a response if you did
