Research Synthesis on Education Interventions for Students with Attention Deficit Disorder. Education of Children with Attention Deficit Disorder.
Fiore, Thomas A.; And Others
This report summarizes activities and findings of a federally funded center at the Research Triangle Institute (North Carolina) reviewing current knowledge concerning nonpharmacological interventions for improving educational outcomes for students with attention deficit disorders (ADD). For each of the seven topics reviewed, the report provides a synopsis summarizing the findings across studies; suggestions for educators; areas for further study; and a matrix of representative studies, displaying key variables and outlining findings most relevant to educators. The topics are: (1) positive reinforcement or token reinforcement; (2) behavior reduction strategies; (3) response cost; (4) self-instruction or cognitive behavioral training; (5) parent or family training; (6) task or environmental stimulation; and (7) biofeedback. An annotated bibliography provides bibliographic information and abstracts for 83 studies which represent the range of research and are particularly well designed or have special relevance for educators. The abstracts describe settings, subjects, and procedures; review the findings with an emphasis on those relevant to teaching and learning; and report conclusions. (Also contains an additional bibliography of approximately 150 items.) (DB)
