Education of Children with Attention Deficit Disorder. Proceedings of the Forum (Washington, D.C., January 27-29, 1993).
Chesapeake Inst., Washington, DC.
These proceedings from a January, 1993, forum on the education of children with attention deficit disorder (ADD) focuses on the activities of five federally funded centers: the Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Center on Attention Deficit Disorder; the University of Miami (Florida) Center for Research on Attention Deficit Disorder; the Research Triangle (North Carolina) Institute, Attention Deficit Disorder Intervention Center; the University of California, Irvine, Attention Deficit Disorder Intervention Center; and the Federal Resource Center at the University of Kentucky. Researchers from each center presented brief reviews of their approaches and findings which were followed by roundtable discussions. These presentations are summarized in these proceedings and covered the following topics: (1) promising practices in identifying and educating children with ADD (Barbara Burcham and Laurance Carson of the Kentucky Center); (2) assessing children with ADD for identification and classification (Roscoe Dykan et al. from the Arkansas Center); (3) characteristics and educational placement of children with ADD (James D. McKinney et al. from the Florida center); (4) educational interventions for children with ADD (Thomas A. Fiore et al. from the North Carolina center); and (5) medical intervention for children with ADD (James Swanson, California center). Two additional chapters report on participant discussion of information dissemination and product development and of related initiatives for children with ADD. (Some chapters include references.)
