Education, as a basic component of human development, captures the capability of acquiring knowledge, communicating and holds the key to progress for any inclusionary society. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a pervasive chronic disorder affecting children’s wellbeing. The purpose of this article is to help children diagnosed with ADHD to cope with their academic demand in an inclusive educational setup with the help of beta wave tune during exam time. Brain wave are of four types, Delta wave-1 to 3 times per second and associated with total unconsciousness and deep dreamless sleep. Theta waves-4 to 7 times a second and associated with early stage of sleep and drowsiness. Alpha wave-8 to 11 times a second and associated with peace and relaxation. Beta wave- 12 to 30 times a second and associated with increased ability to focus on external stimulus. Children with ADHD present excess theta activity and decreased beta in frontal and midline region of brain known as cortical hypo arousal leading to inattention and poor academic performance.
