The ADHD Intervention Checklist.
McEwan, Elaine K.
This checklist assists in adapting and structuring all aspects of classroom life to better meet the needs of students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The checklist is divided into seven sections: (1) environmental interventions (changes in the physical setting that will increase the likelihood of increased learning); (2) academic interventions (modification of classroom procedures and expectations for the students); (3) instructional interventions (changes in teacher behavior, lesson presentation, or both); (4) organizational interventions (strategies to assist the student toward independent self-organization); (5) homework interventions (ways to ensure that independent practice will be productive and lead to the student's learning); (6) behavioral interventions (methods to increase the likelihood of positive behaviors leading to increased learning); and (7) social skills interventions (modifications to help the student with ADHD relate more positively with peers). Three additional blank items have been added to each section to allow educators to insert their own interventions. Directions for using the checklist are provided. (Contains 15 references.) (CR)
