American Education Week is November 14 -19
We must ask the question: Is there a link between psychology/neurology and crime? College students studying Criminology are learning the provocative theories as personality theory, psychoanalytic theory, neurobiological theory and ideas which associate criminal thinking patterns and criminal actions. In this century, about 5 million children age 4-17 years have ever been diagnosed with ADHD, and approximately 10% are school-aged children. During American Education Week, November 14-19, the California Teachers Association reminds us the importance of psychologist on campus to help our youth become successful dealing with mental disorders (http://www.casponline.org/). Teachers have been using appropriate teaching methods and improving the classroom environment to increase the attention of ADD/ADHD youth. We should celebrate the use of research and evidence from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/adhd/data.html) that make teachers aware of how to manage behavioral disorders in the classroom so that our students can say: I love learning! Strategies have been preparing teachers to help ADD/ADHD students succeed in school rather than dropping out and choosing the path of crime.
