The purpose of the study is to examine different situations and behaviors for students diagnosed with AD / HD and see if there are times where their diagnosis will be extra visible. This will ultimately see how and where these children may need support in their daily lives, and about the support they receive is relevant to their needs. Questions I intend to examine: Are there situations for students throughout the school day in which ADHD diagnosis becomes extra visible? If so, what situations? How is the diagnosis in these situations?
It is estimated that about 3-6 percent of school children have AD/HD. It causes difficulties with concentration as well as impulse and activity control. It's not a given that these students get the right support. This is a qualitative study using observations of two children to investigate whether there are situations where students' AD/HD will be extra visible. The results show that there are times when these behaviors clearly manifests during the school day, but also that there are some occasions when some behavior is not particularly noticeable. Some behaviors became evident during the free time during the day, while others became more visible during the controlled period. The result also shows that the times when behaviors are apparent, differs between the two observed the students. This emphasizes the importance to look to the specific needs of support for each individual.
