This article seeks to direct attention to the importance of helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to enjoy schooling. Considering a dearth of documented Nigerian-based research in this area (only one), the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, Office of Special Education Programs's project report titled "Teaching Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Instructional Strategies and Practices" is condered invaluabled for all stake holders in the lives of these childern, so it is adopted as the working paper for this article. The syptoms of ADHD were pointed out while the specific ways in which teachers and parents could help these group of children were discussed. Since a child with ADHD may be able to focus when he/she is receiving frequent reinforcement, the need to work with parents and the community was emphasized.
