Assessment of Children with Attention Problems.
Bacon, Ellen H.
The category of attention deficit disorder is defined in terms of diagnostic symptoms (inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity) and definitions. Aspects which need to be covered in the classroom evaluation of a child with suspected attention deficit disorder are reviewed, including examination of the task for its appropriateness; determination of a specific learning disability in the child; observation of the setting (including the classroom order, acceptance, and the teaching style); and finally, consideration of the child (existence of emotional stress, neurological problems, and mild hearing loss). (Case histories are presented to illustrate assessment considerations.) (CL)
