A Teacher Training Program for the Management of Hyperactive Children.
The practicum was designed to determine if teachers' skills in the area of hyperactivity management could be significantly increased by providing a series of in-service training workshops. The training program was aimed at increasing knowledge about the causes of, and programs associated with, hyperactivity, and also at promoting feelings of competence on the part of the teachers in managing these students in the classrooms. A series of six workshops were implemented in a parochial school over a period of 3 months. Two teachers in each grade (1-8) and several special subjects teachers attended the bimonthly workshops. Results of the workshops indicated a significant increase in the terms of knowledge and perceived level of competence and increased skills in the area of hyperactivitiy management on the part of the teachers. At least 80% of the participants reported feeling more capable of handling hyperactive students and 90% indicated that they were more aware of the needs and problems of these children. Project needs assessment and evaluation forms are appended. (CL)
