A Continuing Education Program on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Reeve, Ron; And Others
This manual and accompanying videotape are intended to be used as a continuing education program to enhance the skills of special and general educators in serving children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The video can also be used alone to provide a general overview of issues related to children with attention deficit disorder. The manual's four modules present basic information, suggest further readings, and provide questions for discussion. Module 1, "Characteristics and Identification" (Ron Reeve, James Wright), covers the history of ADHD, diagnostic criteria, subtypes of ADHD, severity of the disorder, differential diagnosis, principles of good assessment, and multicultural considerations. Module 2, "Model School Programs" (Mary Spessard), covers: school reform; a description of a successful program in Coloma, Michigan; and general characteristics of successful programs. Module 3, "Effective Classroom Interventions" (Ron Walker, Ann Welch), addresses behavioral and academic interventions for use in the classroom. An article reprint, "Everyone Participates in This Class: Using Response Cards To Increase Active Student Response" by William L. Heward and others, is included in Module 3. Module 4, "Policy and Administrative Issues" (Ron Reeve, Judy Schrag, Ron Walker), focuses on recent advocacy and interest in children with ADHD and legal provisions of services for students with ADHD. A table comparing requirements of three major federal laws is attached. (Individual modules contain extensive references.) (DB)
