Remote and virtual classrooms could negatively affect the academics of students, especially in case of a child suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The aim of the present study was to understand the obstacles and differences between the teachers regarding their use of teaching methods, tasks and assignments, tests and evaluation methods and communication between teacher and parents of students with ADHD, during distance learning in COVID-19 pandemic. Data were collected through a questionnaire which was reviewed by some experts in the field of this study from several KSA universities. The result showed that there were statistically significant differences among responses of classroom teachers regarding all the dimensions. Furthermore, there were statistically significant differences between participants in their opinion toward all dimensions according to their specialization and years of experience which was not in the case of age and academic qualifications of the participants. Thus, it was concluded that teachers were willing to co-operate with the students having ADHD during online classes, but they face difficulties in handling them as ADHD students lacks concentration and can be distracted easily.
