Rogers, M., & Tannock, R. (2018). Are classrooms meeting the basic psychological needs of children with ADHD symptoms? A self-determination theory perspective. Journal of Attention Disorders22(14), 1354–1360.

Rhonda Martinussen & Ashley Major (2011) Working memory weaknesses in students with ADHD: Implications for instruction, Theory Into Practice, 50:1, 68 75, DOI: 10.1080/00405841.2011.534943

Look to the conclusion of the Martinussen article. Maybe it is the Alloway or Lienemann and Reid, article that really gets at the topic in your interest area. Use the works cited list to "citation mine”.


Merchant example:

The results of this search are promising as they satisfy the rubric which requires your proposed workshop to address an topic of importance to Ontario teachers. Add an age group or some other keyword to further limit your results. 

Also, remember to be critical of where your article is published. Look for peer reviewed journals published on scholarly platforms or quality open access journals.
